If you haven't already heard, this year the Greenbelt Foundation is the title sponsor of the aptly named "Greenbelt Harvest Picnic" at Christie Lake. September Seventh Entertainment in partnership with the Hamilton Conservation Foundation have planned a great musical event in support of eating local and sustainability.
With legendary Canadian producer and musician, Daniel Lanois headlining, the bill is stacked with world-renowned musicians like Gord Downie and the Country of Miracles, Ray Lamontagne, Emmylou Harris and Sarah Harmer. As enticing as those names are, this picnic is not just about music. People will have a change to swim, fish, take part in horticultural workshops, buy fresh local produce at the farmers market and see the work of local artisans.
