Street food vendors, too, so there’s good snacking. Free. 550 Bayview. Check hours at evergreen.ca/wintervillage.
2. GREENING TORONTO
The power of cities to tackle climate change – it’s our secret weapon against global warming folks – is the focus of a presentation and discussion at Swansea Town Hall, 95 Lavinia, Wednesday (January 11).
