Welcome to The Orchard Around Us – a photographic social art project about edible trees in Toronto, Canada and the people who live closest to them.

Black Mulberry Tree       Cherry Tree

Flowering Plum Tree       Ginkgo Tree

The purpose of this blog is to provide a forum for looking at my neighbourhood from a new perspective. I live in The Junction, a residential area in the city’s west end, just south of the wide swath of train tracks that connect Toronto
to all points west.

Honey Locust Tree       Linden Tree

Turkish Hazel Tree       Norway Maple Tree

Filled with houses built near the turn of the previous century, The Junction is lively with local politics and a strong community of citizen-activists concerned with all aspects of urban sustainability including food security and food justice.

Red Mulberry Tree       Scotch Pine Tree

Serviceberry Tree       Rowan Tree

This is a safe place to talk about TREES, FOOD, FAMILIES, NEIGHBOURS, INTERCONNECTEDNESS, SOCIAL PRACTICE, BEAUTY, PORTRAITS, ACTIVISM and COMMUNITY.

Please add your voice to the conversation!
