The Harvest Walk will be BACK on October 14th, 2023.
The first Harvest Ontario Walk in October of 2022 was a beautiful and inspiring event with great music, great people and great local food -- now grassroots activists are planning for an even bigger and better event on Saturday, October 14th, 2023.
This year's Harvest Walk will be focused on Bolton with two different routes through the city including stops for live music, speeches and local history and other walks nearby in King Township and the Nashville Conservation Reserve.
We're also finalizing plans for cycling routes and a walk in Halton Region.
Unfortunately, the threats to Ontario farmland have only grown since the first Harvest Walk with the removal of 7,400 acres of land from the Greenbelt. Activists are currently scoping out an additional walk from Vaughan Metropolitan Centre to TACC headquarters to protest the big developers and land speculators who keep pushing for more and more McMansions on farmland and wetlands -- instead of affordable housing close to public transit!
This walk is being held in memory of Jenni Le Forestier, a beloved and dedicated environmental activist from Caledon who passed away in 2022. Jenni was for many years one of the driving forces behind the grassroots Stop the 413 movement. If you'd like to know more about Jenni, you can read this tribute written by Dan O'Reilly.
