Here is a great community event in the small town in the big city known as Cabbagetown.
This self-guided tour (map in the ticket) showcases the creative designs of imaginative gardeners in private inner-city spaces in the Heritage Conservation District of downtown Toronto, Cabbagetown, where most homes date from the mid to late 1800s. Many gardens can be accessed only through pleasant back lanes with appealing names like Magic, Yen or Chipping Sparrow.
Gardeners, present in their backyard gardens, inform visitors of diverse solutions to specific urban challenges: shade from 100-year old trees, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, pigeons and the occasional fox or coyote.
Location: Cabbagetown,Toronto – Carlton & Parliament
Tickets cost $15.00. Buy tickets at various outlets in the city or online using PayPal at www.cabbagetownpa.ca. The web site also lists the ticket vendors. Visit the website for more information about special offers for ticket holders.
P.S. For those of you who’ve asked in the past,
“Is your garden going to be on the tour?”This time I’m saying,“Yes.” Come see me in my garden at #2 Geneva Avenue.
