In case you’ve been wondering why posts on the Bovine have been so sparse lately, one contributing factor may be the editor’s pre-occupation with a controversy closer to home. The Toronto Waldorf School (TWS) has not figured much on the Bovine to date, although the school’s parking lot was, until a few years ago, the meeting place for contact with farm-share members in the city.
