Had a hunch, turned into an alley and found a pixie.

It’s a wonderful place to buy fresh veggies and fruits, in a shipping container.
The container was donated. The donors fixed up the inside to be a fresh produce market.
The donors also installed electricity, heat and AC, so that it could be opened year round.
Located in an inner city part of Toronto, this endeavor is bringing healthy food to very low income people and families who would normally not afford it.
As there are no operating costs, the food is priced well below market.
The moment I laid eyes on the colorful renditions of the fruits, veggies and flowers decorating it, I knew I had found my Thank You post for Benji and Ms. Zulu.
You might remember that Benji and Ms. Zulu hosted a Vegetable Garden post for Kids” Month.
Every city should have projects like this to help out.

⭐ ⭐ THANK YOU, BENJI & MS. ZULU! ⭐ ⭐
Benji and Ms. Zulu were the best helpers I ever had. They know a lot about planting, watering and why we should not use pesticides. You can visit them by clicking on their names or on their pic.
They want to remind everyone to visit “Vegetables & Fruits Dogs Can & Can’t Eat”
Fresh water is one of the most important things in life.
Benji & Ms. Zulu remind us in my last post, that all plants & animals need plenty of fresh water to live and grow.
SO, how can we keep it clean? Can we pollute less? How will life grow if it drinks poison?
There is one other side to this mini-mural. Looks to me like kids are sharing.
Here’s older kids, still sharing.

KIDS MONTH 2017
These sweet birdies are all over the city for young and old alike to enjoy.
This painted power box is outside of a grade school, and community park.
Seems like chicks and “Chicklets” alike are for kids, and kids are very cool.
Even the stupid tag on this side doesn’t ruin it, for me. I hope the kids who see it everyday are inspired by the art, and not the vandalism. I’m hoping Uber 5000 comes back and touches it up.

In a lane off Wellesely is this very pretty, but wildly eroded mural.
I’ve never seen paint peeling like this before. It was literally hanging like curled and colorful Post-it notes across a 40 ft. wall.
Had I found this when it was fresh, it would have been a 3-part post. This is all that was left to take pics of. I considered taking a shot of the peeling paint, but alas, I couldn’t bare to be reminded of what I’d missed out on.

I found this tribute, by Elicser, in Graffiti Alley, Toronto.
You can read about him & listen to his raps on the King Reign Website
He was a Toronto Gem. Young to die, & honestly, I don’t know everything. However, this is a beautiful work of art.
