Holiday Gift Ideas From the Greenbelt

The Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation has assembled a list of our favourite holiday gifts that represent and support the Greenbelt’s agriculture and environmental integrity.

You can view our entire list of goodies on our website, but here are a few we'd like to highlight:

 

FoodShare

Play a role in Ontario’s Greenbelt by making sure there is fresh healthy food for everyone. By placing a donation to FoodShare in the name of a friend or family member, you are ensuring many FoodShare projects are able to continue contributing to many communities. Most FoodShare programs are completely community service, such as teaching how to make homemade baby food, supporting community gardens and kitchens and operating the FoodLink Hotline. www.foodshare.net

Stasis Preserves: Greenbelt-grown Black Walnuts in Honey 

The rich, earthy flavour of black walnuts combined with the bright lavender taste of raw wildflower honey makes a perfect pairing for game meats, in salad dressings or even on ice cream. These Greenbelt-grown delectables are made in small batches by Stasis Preserves. Find them Saturdays at the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto or in select stores for $10 for a 250ml jar.www.stasispreserves.com
