One sunny Saturday in September 2011 the Hort took patrons on a tour of many productive vegetable and herb gardens in the Parkdale-High Park area. Well known Toronto garden writer Lorraine Johnson gave a talk and signed copies of her book, City Farmer: Adventures in Urban Gardening. There were also speakers in some of the gardens, including Carolin Taron who has helped create several public gardens in West Toronto.

The inaugural 2011 tour was a great success, due no doubt to the fine weather ordered in advance by Beth Kapusta. (You don’t have to take my word, she told me she did it!) We saw great gardens, ranging from the 19th century heritage vegetables at Colborne Lodge to a thoroughly 21st century garage-top planting.
