Thank you to the hundreds of people who celebrated and honoured North America's beloved children's music trio last Saturday at the naming ceremony and concert for our new Sharon, Lois & Bram Playground.
Ward 22's Davisville Village Farmers’ Market opens for another season!
AppleTree Markets, a local Ward 22 non-profit organization, will once again be transforming June Rowlands Park into a temporary town square for the third year of their popular farmers’ market. I am delighted to support this community-building initiative at June Rowlands (Davsiville) Park. The market has been a place where you are sure to see friends and neighbours, while buying fresh produce, fish, meats, chocolate, and so much more. This season, the market begins on May 13 and will operate weekly on Tuesdays between 3 and 7pm. I look forward to seeing you there!
Celebrating the New Oriole Park Community Garden
In April 2012, I held a participatory budgeting meeting to ask residents of the Brentwood Towers, Deer Park and Chaplin Estates how they would like to allocate community benefit funds to improve Oriole Park. The local community voted to direct these Section 37 funds toward a community garden. I am very happy to report that my motion to deliver this funding was approved this year by Council. Construction of the garden began in April (in time for the gardening season), and we will be celebrating the opening of the community garden on Saturday, May 24 at 11am in Oriole Park. Please feel very welcome to join us.
