Walk Food June 4, Sunday, 11:45am. Free. Toronto Vegan Meetup (torontovegan) Hike: Walk the West Don River, the Bridle Path and Taylor Creek.
Quote: "We'll be on the East side of Coxwell, between Danforth and Strathmore, behind the bus shelters **Rain date is June 11. If the forecast calls for 40% chance or more of rain as of Friday, June 2, I will change the scheduled date to the 11th . **Note: this meetup is scheduled for 11:45am. We will leave at 12:00pm. If you are late, you can try to catch up with us by following the map. The 70 bus runs from Coxwell station to O'Connor, but you'll have to get off there and chase us into the ravine if you're running that far behind. Map of the Walk.
Hey walkers! The summer is finally again here, and it's time to move it! For this first walk of the season, we're going to go all out! This will be a LONG walk (20km), and will last about 5 hours. For most of the time, we will be in the paths along the ravines, and so there won't be many easy opportunities for people to jump on a bus or subway.
We'll start and end at Coxwell station (my hood!) There is a new store right there called Warehouse Organics that sells Miyoko Cheeze and Beyond Meat!!!! :o :o :o Bring shopping bags! But it's probably best to wait until the end of the walk to stop. It's open until 6:30 on Sundays.
From Coxwell station, we'll head up Coxwell Ave, onto Coxwell Blvd, and then down into the ravine. From here, we'll sort of twist and turn until we get to Serena Gundy Park, and then head up into the York Glendon Campus and onto Lawrence. From there, we'll head east up a STEEP hill (I cannot stress the "steep" enough here) and into the Bridle Path. This is one of the most expensive postal codes in Canada, and home to Drake (if that sort of thing interests you). The homes here are absolutely extravagant, and definitely something to see, even if just to gawk at their size and splendour. We'll make a loop through the poshest of neighbourhoods before heading to Edward Gardens and then into the ravine again. At this point it's basically a loop back through to our starting point! "

Start/End: Coxwell and O'Connor, 1 Coxwell Blvd, between Danforth and Strathmore.

Environment/Nature Discussion June 12, Monday, 6:15pm-8:15pm. Free. Green 13 Talk: Flowing Water, Flooding, and Gardens for the Rain / The Lost Rivers of Ward 13 and RAINscapeTO with Helen Mills Quote: "100 years ago in Ward 13 several little creeks flowed from an ancient sandbar (near the Stockyards) into Humber Bay. Today the creeks are buried under curving streets with steep ravine sides, and come above ground only in High Park - or sometimes in our basements! With more extreme weather predicted, many people are wondering what we can do about flooding in our homes and neighbourhoods. In this fascinating interactive session, we’ll discover neighbourhood Lost Rivers, and find out just what happens to the rain that lands in our part of the city, where it flows and why it sometimes floods. Then, with the help of our session leaders, we’ll explore the best places to slow down and soak up the water. We’ll also learn about the new RAINscapeTO program in Toronto and a host of clever environmentally friendly solutions – rain gardens, green roofs, bioswales and others – that can keep our homes dry and streets safe even when the weather turns wild. Learn about rain garden landscaping - a new way of gardening that can help prevent flooding, restore a more natural water cycle, and enhance quality of life. Helen Mills, founder of Toronto Green Community’s Lost Rivers program, will present the program with partners from RAINscapeTO. RAINscapeTO is a new program to bring RAIN garden landscaping to Toronto. It is a collaborative project of Toronto Green Community and Lost Rivers in partnership with Miziwe Biik, Toronto Region Conservation Authority, and a network of Eco landscapers. Co-sponsored by Our Fragile Planet, Jane/Dundas Library, and Green 13."

Food Walk June 18, Sunday, 11:45am. Free. Toronto Vegan Meetup - Walk the West Don River, the Bridle Path and Taylor Creek.
Quote: "If the forecast calls for 40% chance or more of rain as of Friday, June 16, I will change the scheduled date. **Note: this meetup is scheduled for 11:45am. We will leave at 12:00pm. If you are late, you can try to catch up with us by following the map. The 70 bus runs from Coxwell station to O'Connor, but you'll have to get off there and chase us into the ravine if you're running that far behind. Map of the Walk
Hey walkers! The summer is finally again here, and it's time to move it!
For this first walk of the season, we're going to go all out! This will be a LONG walk (20km), and will last about 5 hours. For most of the time, we will be in the paths along the ravines, and so there won't be many easy opportunities for people to jump on a bus or subway.
We'll start and end at Coxwell station (my hood!) There is a new store right there called Warehouse Organics that sells Miyoko Cheeze and Beyond Meat!!!! :o :o :o Bring shopping bags! But it's probably best to wait until the end of the walk to stop. It's open until 6:30 on Sundays.
From Coxwell station, we'll head up Coxwell Ave, onto Coxwell Blvd, and then down into the ravine. From here, we'll sort of twist and turn until we get to Serena Gundy Park, and then head up into the York Glendon Campus and onto Lawrence. From there, we'll head east up a STEEP hill (I cannot stress the "steep" enough here) and into the Bridle Path. This is one of the most expensive postal codes in Canada, and home to Drake (if that sort of thing interests you). The homes here are absolutely extravagant, and definitely something to see, even if just to gawk at their size and splendour. We'll make a loop through the poshest of neighbourhoods before heading to Edward Gardens and then into the ravine again.
At this point it's basically a loop back through to our starting point! "

Location: East side of Coxwell, between Danforth and Strathmore, behind the bus shelters.
