Mural Routes and Feed Scarborough have partnered to deliver The Golden Mile Food Equity Community Project, a City of Toronto Cultural Hotspot Signature Project. Through a holistic approach to community-building, local artists and community members will facilitate four workshops where participants will learn, create, eat, and grow together.
The Golden Mile Food Equity Community Project will combine sustainable food practices and art-making to harvest a strong sense of community belonging among participants and provide a sense of pride and connections to their local support systems and non-profit organizations such as Feed Scarborough, Mural Routes, and Cultural Hotspot.
Attend an art-based workshop, where participants will decorate a terra cotta pot as well as learn how to grow a plant that they can care for in their own homes. Participants will also be able to contribute concepts and ideas to four designs which will be transferred onto picnic tables. All supplies and light snacks will be provided for participants.
These workshops are open to individuals of all ages and abilities, and we especially encourage families who reside in the Golden Mile and/or belong to the Feed Scarborough community to attend.
*Priority will be given to registered participants living in the Golden Mile area and/or those who express a connection to the Feed Scarborough community.
