While much of Toronto is flat land, unique geographic features set the Regal Heights neighbourhood apart. The most prominent is the 50 to 75-foot bluff — called Davenport Hill or the Davenport Escarpment — just north of Davenport Road. It marks the shoreline of a prehistoric lake that was formed at the end of the Ice Age, about 12,000 years ago.
There was a good turnout of gardening enthusiasts at the second annual Plant & Seed Swap, May 11 outside the Dufferin-St. Clair Library. Residents brought seeds and plants and helped themselves to something new for their gardens. John thanked the Library and their volunteers, as well as the RHRA volunteers for a successful event.
