Fruit trees in Toronto are just beginning to ripen, but once apple season is in full swing, one Toronto organization will make sure that the surplus from Toronto’s urban fruit harvest goes to good use.
City Cider returns to the heritage orchard on the grounds of the Spadina Museum this September for a day full of picnicking on the lawns surrounded by live local music, games and kid activities, delectable eats, freshly pressed cider, and a hard craft cider bar.
This annual all-ages event is hosted by Not Far From The Tree, the Toronto-based fruit picking project that allows Torontonians to register their fruit-bearing trees for volunteers to pick and divvy up amongst the homeowner, volunteers, and community organizations like local food banks, shelters, and community kitchens.
Tickets to City Cider also cover a tour of the Spadina Museum.
When: September 16, noon to 5 pm
Where: Spadina Museum, 285 Spadina Road, Toronto
Price: $10 in advance, $15 at the gate
