- CONNECT with Torontonians in your community
- SHARE your ideas on how to connect emerging themes with the city around us
- LEARN how to plan a walk in your neighbourhood
After learning the history of Jane’s Walks, hearing from past walk leaders, and Torontonians engaging with food issues, we broke into smaller groups to brainstorm topics relating to food and how this might look as a walking tour. Examples included: doing a grocery store walk and comparing prices for the same meal in different neighbourhoods, a walk exploring and tasting edible weeds, or a walk exploring community gardens and spaces that have the potential for community gardens.
If anyone is interested in leading a walk on these, or any other food issues, feel free to contact the Jane’s Walk organizers at the Centre for Social Innovation. Additionally, if you are interested in any of their other WalkShop themes (such as Art and the City, Gender and the City, First Nations and the City) you can register here. If this exciting opportunity to engage with the community isn’t incentive enough, the WalkShops are held and catered by the CSI Coffee Pub, yum!
