Another Build: SOLEfood Urban Farm A Success

Posted on: November 1st, 2009 by Heather

My son and I wandered in to our neighborhood JJ Bean on Sunday morning. I was still on a high from from yesterday’s build. I picked up a copies of all the daily’s and read the articles about SOLEfood – so pleased at the media response. I thought most of the print media stories managed to keep it positive – without any needles digressions on the problems of the DTES. I enjoyed Susan Lazaruk’s article in The Province.  I thought she did a really nice job of describing the event. The Sun and Globe articles were great too, especially focusing on the efforts of all the groups who played such a crucial role leading up to yesterday.

Anyways, I am truly humbled by how much everyone achieved in half a day, and my thanks go out to everyone involved.

I would like to thank Seann Dorry of United We Can for asking us to get involved and our own Kim McLymont and Heidi Lam. Without your hard work over the past couple of weeks this event couldn’t have happened.
