West-End YIMBY Festival at the Gladstone Hotel!
May 22nd, 2016 // 11:00am – 3:30pm in the Ballroom
The West-End YIMBY (Yes in My Backyard) Festival at the Gladstone Hotel is an event for people and groups involved – or looking to become involved – in grassroots, locally driven community development in West-End Toronto. It’s a social space for people and groups to gather, exchange ideas, and establish connections to effect change and strengthen their networks.
Typically a citywide event, for this edition of the festival, the Gladstone Hotel has teamed up with Shape My City to create a local version in West-End Toronto. We’re bringing together a range of socially-engaged local organizations to foster a neighbourhood network committed to affecting positive change and building community.
The West-End YIMBY is a place to learn about the organizations building community in your neighbourhood, and find out how you can get involved. Come find out what your neighbourhood is up to!

High Park Stewards: Garlic Mustard Busting
Sunday, May 22, 2016, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Grenadier Restaurant, Colbourne Lodge Drive and Centre Road, Toronto, ON
High Park’s tablelands contain many rare native plants. As many people as possible are needed to remove garlic mustard from this valuable area, in order to allow our native plants to flourish.
Meet us in front of the Grenadier Restaurant at 10:30 am, and we will go together to the site. All tools will be provided.
