I can't believe it, but it is that time of year again . . .
I have barely put away all of my seeds for the season . . .
& now I am up at my studio packaging them for our upcoming craft show
Dagmar Baur is a personal mentor of mine. She has worked tirelessly for years to support gardens, naturalization projects and community arts. She is a champion of making gardening more accessible to people who live on low incomes and come from diverse cultures. Dagmar has enriched both her own neighbourhood (engaging Bain Co-op members in greening projects) and across the city. York Community Services, Black Creek Farm and the Toronto Community Garden Network have all been strengthened by her wisdom, experience and passion.
A Party In Honour of Dagmar
As many of you are aware, Dagmar is in a tough battle with cancer. Her spirits are high but like everyone at one point or another, she needs our help.
We've all benefited from Dagmar’s commitment, knowledge and giving nature.
Now it's time to give something back! Some extra money would go a long way to improving her quality of life.
