A Nursery at the Barns

When I moved into the neighbourhood ten years ago, I was really missing my old neighbourhood down at College and Bathurst.

But then the Wychwood Barns opened.

And the neighbourhood just came to life for me.


I love coming to the farmer’s market on Saturday. And seeing all my friends and my kids’ friends.


Having kids it’s been amazing to come here with them all the time. They can play in the park, check out the community gardens and use the pizza oven!

I’ve been involved in some incredible things at the Barns.

Every year I volunteer at the Gluten Free Garage. And I helped to start the nursery school there – The Hélène Comay Nursery School.

We were looking for a special place, that could house this special nursery school!

And this was the most perfect space.

Thanks to Alison for sharing her story! Make sure to check out Rethink Breast Cancer, the charity she co-founded, and check out her work in the medical marijuana field.
