Wychwood Barns Community Association, Evergreen CityWorks, and Councillor Joe Mihevc are partnering to host a series of roundtables in May at Artscape Wychwood Barns. Each roundtable will open with a presentation by leaders in each of the featured topics.
Connect with others in your community and create a shared vision for what Canadian cities need in order to be better places to live, work, and play. The roundtables are a fun and dynamic way to contribute to the We Are Cities campaign. https://youtu.be/tjbRHZD96io

The 2015 Ward 21 Community Environment Day was a great success!
We enjoyed a nice sunny spring day and a fantastic turn out from the community, eager to drop off their used items and household hazardous waste. As it usually is, the leaf compost was a hot commodity and folks brought buckets, boxes, and bags to cart away this valuable resource for their gardens.
We enjoyed a live performance from an impressive choir from Humewood Public School, who showed off their rock n’ roll moves. They were directed by music teacher, Mack Polack, and encouraged by Principal Julie Whitfield and School Board Trustee Shelley Laskin.
We also welcomed Mayor John Tory. The jury is still out about whether I shovelled compost better than the Mayor in our friendly competition.
I would like to thank all of the community organizations who contributed to making this day a success. They did a great job of highlighting the important work that they are doing in our community to make our neighbourhoods and city a greener and more healthy place to live and encouraging the community to get involved in important place-making initiatives.
I would also like to thank our food vendors who provided tasty snacks for people out to enjoy the day.
I would like to thank our partners at the City for organizing another great drop-off and to everyone who came out and participated.
