The Toronto Farmers' Market Network (www.tfmn.ca) presents a screening of Symphony of the Soil, made by filmmaker, Debra Koons Garcia of 'The Future of Food'.

Where: Royal Theatre, 608 College St.

Synopsis: 'Drawing from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, Symphony of the Soil is an artistic exploration of a miraculous substance, soil. By understanding the elaborate relationships and mutuality between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource. The film examines our human relationship with soil, the use and misuse of soil in agriculture, deforestation and development, and the latest scientific research on soil's key role in ameliorating the most challenging environmental issues of our time. Filmed on four continents, featuring esteemed scientists and working farmers and ranchers, Symphony of the Soil is an intriguing presentation that highlights the possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet.'
Toronto Farmers' Market Network brings together community-based market organizers to share information, advocate for a strong and healthy local food system, and grow great markets in our city.

It's back.....starting Tuesday May 7th, and every Tuesday after that till Oct. 29th, we are on! 3pm to 7pm, Shaw and Dundas West. Rain or shine ;-) It's still a bit early in our Ontario growing season, but there'll be....salad greens, microgreens, baked goods, bread, cheese, meat and a whole lot more.
There are still opportunities to volunteer at the market. Why not come out and help the vendors off load and/or wrap. It's a great time in the urban outdoors and to sustain the market.
