Join us for free coffee and treats in Ben Nobleman Park on Sunday, July 23 at 11.30 am! Our park is located at the intersection of Eglinton Avenue West and Strathearn Road and is just steps away from the Eglinton West Subway station in midtown Toronto.
There’s so much to celebrate in Ben Nobleman Park Community Orchard in Toronto. Earlier this month we enjoyed a beautiful cherry harvest from our two cherry trees. And now the apple trees are heavy with fruit that will ripen in September and October. And our pollinator garden is in full bloom. So, in order to celebrate the beauty and abundance in our park, the volunteers of The Ben Nobleman Park Community Orchard have organized a “Coffee in the Garden” event!
Our local Starbucks will be donating lots of coffee for us to share around. And local bakery What a Bagel is donating some yummy cookies for the event. So, this Sunday, July 23rd at 11.30 am, join us in Ben Nobleman Park (directly opposite Toronto’s Eglinton West subway station and at the corner of Eglinton Avenue West and Strathearn Road) for coffee and treats and an official orchard tour!
Bring a donation if you can and we’ll give you a herb bundle from our pollinator garden. And learn more about growing fruit trees during the tour. Are you curious about what trees we grow and why? Would you like to know how easy (or difficult!) it is to grow fruit trees? What are the challenges of growing fruit trees in a public space? How do you become a volunteer and what is involved? During our orchard tour at 12 noon you’ll learn about those things and more.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
