Wallace Avenue Footbridge as art







On October 2, 2010, as part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, the Wallace Avenue Footbridge in West Toronto will be transformed into a huge, shimmering chandelier.

For one night only, electric trains are coming to the Junction Triangle to celebrate the neighbourhood’s rebellious spirit.

The depiction of quiet, clean, efficient

West End Food Co-op will be running another canning workshop

Someone recently commented on the Junction needing a framers market, what i really wish we had was a food co-op like the West End Food Co-op

The West End Food Co-op will be running another canning workshop onTuesday September 28th in the Parkdale Neighbourhood Church at 201 Cowan Avenue!

The workshop will be led by Heather Kilner, an expert preserver with many years of experience.

You will learn about the theory and practice of preserving, gain hands-on experience using a hot water bath canner, and leave with a jar of delicious preserves to take home with you. We will also take time to reflect on the meaning and significance of learning to preserve our own food, and our experiences of preserved food.

The workshop will run from 6:00-8:30 with registration starting at 5:30. The total cost for the workshop is $30 for West End Food Co-op members or $35 for non-members (which includes the cost of a lifetime membership). Payment can be made in person at the workshop.

Please register online by visiting our website at westendfood.coop. (If the hotlink does not work please paste the following link into your browser address bar: http://westendfood.coop/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=40 or follow the link entitled Community Cannery Workshop on the left-hand side of the main page of our website at http://westendfood.coop).

Spaces are limited and previous workshops have filled very quickly so don't delay!

If you have any questions about the workshop please don't hesitate to contact me atkatie@westendfood.coop

Happy Canning!
