John is the new host as Anne-Julie will be unable to host this to a last minute situation that came up.
Feel like getting your hands dirty while helping the community! Well come help Evergreen Brick Works revitalize the ravines. We will be doing some gardening, tree planting or whatever they need help with. Cloves and all gardening material is provided by Evergreen, you presence is the only thing required.
Since it will be a dirty job, appropriate and comfortable clothes and shoes are required. And because the activity will go on even in the rain, a rain coat and boots might be useful.
For those who want to know a little more about Evergreen Brick Works, here is there website:
This event requires registering. (Anne-Julie) I have reserved 10 tickets so please change your RSVP to No if you cannot make it so that you do not prevent someone else from coming.

A positive attitude and water bottle. Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather, we will still plant in rain.

Gloves and tools.
Where to meet:
You will find a map of Evergreen Brick Works at this address: http://www.evergreen.ca/downloads/pdfs/EBW-Visitor-Map.pdf
Because there is a wonderful organic farmers market every Saturday, I suggest that we stay on a little longer to have lunch and make some nice purchases. And because Evergreen Brick Works is located in the Ravines we might also want to go for a walk (we'll decide once we are there).
How to get there:
From Downtown: It is easiest to access Bayview Avenue from River Street, which runs north from King Street and joins Bayview just north of Gerrard Street.
From the Don Valley Parkway : Take the exit for Bloor Street/Bayview Avenue and head north on Bayview for 300 metres until you come to Evergreen Brick Works.
From East York : The easiest way to approach Bayview Avenue from the east is via Pottery Road, which runs between Broadview Avenue (north of Bloor) and Bayview Avenue. Travel 700 metres south on Bayview until you come to Evergreen Brick Works on your right.
There is plenty of paying parking, but parking on Bayview Avenue is prohibited
At Broadview subway station, there is a shuttle bus leaving every 30 minutes (on the hour and at 30 min past). Departs from the parkette on Erindale Ave east of Broadview Ave (just north of Broadview subway station). Pets are not permitted on the shuttle bus, but service animals such as guide dogs are permitted.
