Mark your calendars! The 4th edition of the Hamilton Farm Map will be launching Friday May 14th!

You are invited to the launch of the 2010-2011 Hamilton Farm Map AND EH's Open House during Friday May 14th James Street North Art Crawl.

Our new landlords at Sonic Unyon Records (22 Wilson Street) are letting Environment Hamilton take over the building (for the night at least).

On the first floor, come see a photo exhibit of farms on the new Hamilton Eat Local map.

On the second floor, sample some VQA wines (Vinter's Quality Alliance) with sommelier Karen LaVigne of Selections de La Vigne, and taste the difference compared to international blends. Light refreshments will be provided - as local as possible of course!

On the third floor, EH is featuring local, multi-talented artist, Louisa Kratka.
And find out what EH is up to for the summer and beyond!
