    9:30 AM to 2:00 PM We're going on a summer's bike ride through the countryside, and you're invited! Our destination? Heart's Content Organic Farmstead, a beautiful 57-acre farm, right on the Trans-Canada rail trail running from Dundas to Brantford. On the site, we will be served lunch ($10) and an opportunity to hear a short presentation from the owners during a half hour "lunch and learn." A mile away from the Greenbelt's protected countryside, Heart's Content farm is fighting to be included in it. Meet the farmers who will tell you why Brant County's precious farmlands need to be protected permanently from encroaching sprawl--pressure building as a result of leap frogging development--from Hamilton (in the Greenbelt) over to Brant County/Brantford. Learn more about growing the Greenbelt at www.sustainablebrant.org/expanding_the_greenbelt_into_brant_county *Lunch includes sandwich, treat, fruit and beverage. You are welcome to bring your own lunch if you prefer. SCHEDULE 9:15 am – Hamilton riders meet at Fortino’s (1579 Main St. West, Hamilton) 9:30 am - riders take-off 10:30 am – Ancaster riders meet at the rail trail parking lots (Highway 52 just south of Powerline Road) 11:30 am – riders arrive at Heart’s Content Farm (27 Ronald Rd. RR #8, Brantford) 11:45 am – greenbelt awareness lunch and learn 12:30 pm – ride back to Hamilton or option to stay for a quick tour of the farm!
