Design tours, films, urban farming workshops, and seed exchanges are all part of the fun at the third annual Grow Op exhibition in downtown Toronto this spring. From April 23rd to 26th, 2015, the Gladstone Hotel will be host to a multidisciplinary forum that celebrates urban agriculture, landscape design, gardens, art, and place-making. Farmers, architects, designers, and urbanists will be discussing the intersection of landscape and urban culture, and how the city can evolve its natural spaces to best suit its communities. There will be a special urban agriculture workshop by Bowery Project and an organic tasting from Chef Jamie Kennedy, and attendees will be able to explore just how the natural landscape can be worked with to suit urban needs for shelter, recreation, sustainable food and ever-growing demands on local ecosystems.
Grow Op 2015 is Curated by Victoria Taylor and Graham Teeple, with Britt Welter-Nolan. For more information, visit the Gladstone Hotel website.
