Sarah Harmer performs at the 2014 Greenbelt Harvest Picnic.
At the end of August, we celebrated our fourth annual Greenbelt Harvest Picnic. Put on by Daniel Lanois and September Seventh Entertainment, the day was a celebration of music, food, and art.
While the music was front and centre, the many farmers, food vendors, artisans, and NGOs added a unique flavour that I can only see at the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic. From the most flavourful garlic to the juiciest grape tomatoes, you would not find the usual “burger and fries” fare at this event.Read more
Susan and I joined the student artists at Bruce Junior Public School along with artist Katherine Laco, Ranger Aidan, and Helen Mills.
The health of Toronto's urban environment is inextricably connected to its surrounding landscape. About forty significant rivers and streams flow south from their headwaters in the Oak Ridges Moraine, serving as wildlife corridors for plants and animals. I like to think of these river corridors as the arteries of the landscape, providing fresh air and clean water, and pumping life into every corner of the Greenbelt.Read more

A field guide is a well-known tool, a book, used to help identify things in the environment that may appear similar, but in actuality are quite diverse.Read more
The Greenbelt Harvest Picnic is fast approaching, bringing together great music, art, family activities, and local food all in celebration of Ontario’s Greenbelt.
In light of the recent news that Neil Young & Crazy Horse cancelled, I know there has been some frustration surrounding the decision to give ticket holders a partial refund only. I wanted to take a moment to reiterate that we at the Foundation do not make any money from this event. The decision to provide only a $40 partial refund was made by September Seventh Entertainment Ltd. As a title sponsor, we have no authority in making this decision.Read more

This is my first blog about my exciting journey of painting Greenbelt murals in York Region elementary schools.
I will start with how all began. I was one of 40 artists that were asked to make quilt squares for a quilt about what the Greenbelt meant to us for the Quilt of Possibilities. I am also a teacher. The kids saw me working on my square. They wanted to make one for our school, and so we did!Read more
