Farmer Kearns

Farmer Kearns – oops that was meant to read Lisa Kearns, ward 2 Councillor, was out on a pasture making an announcement.

There is going to be an “urban farm” on Brant Street at Ghent in the North West corner.


A Molinaro development that is years away. The empty field will be turned into an urban farm.

Kearns advises that the property is the subject of a development application submitted by the Molinaro Group.

Kearns explains that the development is years away and in the meantime a group asked for and has been given permission to set up an urban farm.

That got through city hall in record speed.

Not much more in the way of details – other than to say there are bales of how now set up on the property.

Phase 1 of an Urban Farm – on Brant Street.

Grow for Change a group that advocates for the farming community. They can be reached by email at grow4changes@gmail.com

They are reported to be looking for volunteers once everything is set up.

So if you own a pitchfork and farming trousers – stand by – someone is going to want you.

    So obvious the developer just wants to garner favors in the community and with our naive politicians. I find it interesting that a number of former councilors have acquired numerous rental properties. Cronyism is at an all time high in burlington. Definitely who you know in this town. Can’t wait till the next election.

    Why are those buildings allowed to be so tall in our down town.?

    I don’t get it. Where there used to be farms, there is now development, and where there’s development, there is now going to be a “mock” farm? Is this a distraction from all the farmland being developed north of Dundas Hwy 5? What’s next?

    As I read this, Talking Heads’ “Nothing but Flowers” comes to mind. “This used to be real estate, now it’s only fields and trees.”
