Edible Tree Tour on September 20, 2008

September 20th — 1pm to 3pm

After touring the historic english orchards of the Spadina House participants will be treated to a sample of heritage apples freshly picked for market that morning by volunteers. Guest leader Laura Rainsborough will discuss Not far from the tree a wonderful new organization that is inventorying heritage fruit trees on residential properties in the area and then harvesting their bounty, 952 pounds of fruit so far this year! LEAF arborist Todd Irvine will share the history of the massive white oaks on the Spadina house grounds, so old that members of the Anishinabe Indian tribe, the area's first inhabitants, possibly passed under their canopies. The tour will also visit the grounds of Casa Loma and a steep forested ravine slope with century old mansions peering over its edge.
Trees and shrubs that provide edible fruit for both people and animals will be profiled throughout the tour.
If you would like to attend, please complete our RSVP form.
Suggested donation: $5
Meet at: Spadina House main entrance, 285 Spadina Rd. (just northeast of Casa Loma) | Map
