Please note this tour is now FULL. We cannot accept any further registrations at this point. Thank you for your interest- EFAO hopes to host another rooftop tour in the seasons ahead!

Join the EFAO BIPOC Farmers Network and Nicole, Sharene, and Samantha from Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU, formerly known as Ryerson) for an in-depth tour and discussion of their rooftop production spaces, including the Learning Circle gardens and the Indigenous Foodways gardens. They will also share about the Black Food Sovereignty Initiative and the Indigenous Foodways program. The Research Coordinator  will also share information about current research projects, as well as the farmer-led research that the rooftop farmers are doing this year. They’ll also be available to answer participant questions about soil health as well. Come prepared for a lot of experiential learning! At the end of the visit, participants will get to enjoy some cedar tea and casual social time in the beautiful new roof gathering space.

 

Please arrive on time for this tour, as the building is card access only and latecomers will hold up the group tour. Please wear closed toed shoes and appropriate sun protection, and bring a water bottle – it gets hot on the roof!
