6th Annual Community Garden Tour & Poker Run
This years tour includes a membership and lunch at Nourish and Develop's Community Food Hub.
This summer we are holding DIG’s 6th Annual Community Garden Tour on Saturday July 22nd@ 9:00am. With the success of last years tour, we will be running another "Community Garden Poker Run". All participants on the tour will be dealt a random playing card at each garden we visit. At the end of the tour the individuals with the best poker hands will be able to choose from a selection of prizes from local businesses. On our stop at the Whitby Ajax Garden Project they will be selling their fresh, home made preserves.

CARPE DIEM FARM
Carpe Diem Farm is the brainchild of Julie Belli, an award winning artisan cheese maker and tireless advocate of using organic practices to cultivate fresh local food. In addition to providing aspiring farmers with incubator plots to try their hands at the land risk-free, Carpe Diem Farm is also home to a farm shop, farm cafe, a classroom, a mixed orchard, greenhouses, and soon, a newly renovated cheese plant and milking room that will produce goat, sheep and cow cheeses, as well as other quality products.
