Life Lessons and Learning to Love Worms

Tuesday, June 1st, Green T Environmental Speaker's Night
If you have a couple of hours on June 1st, I hope you'll join Green T at our final Speaker's night before the summer break. It is going to be an exceptional evening - one you won't want to miss.

Our first speaker of the evening will be Cathy Nesbitt – worm advocate and
founder of Cathy’s Crawly Composters. Cathy believes that the solution to the garbage crisis is actually several solutions, and one of those solutions is vermicomposting. In her presentation, Cathy will help us discover how to convert organic matter into nature’s finest soil amendment as we find out how red wiggler worms benefit the environment.

Cathy’s engaging presentation will include a 15-minute session for members in the audience who’d like to make their own mini worm kit. Children are welcome to join us for this speaker's night, but please be aware that there is a modest $5.00 fee to participate in the childrens’ take-home mini worm kit portion of Cathy’s presentation. This presentation is sure to inspire all kids - from 4-94.

Up next is Damian MacSeáin – born in Wawa, and raised in Peel, Damian MacSeáin is the son of Irish immigrants. Together with his Aboriginal wife and children, Damian ventured north to his wife’s fly-in James Bay Cree community, a place where timeless traditions and modern development meet head on. What could this possibly have to do with our GTA lifestyle? Everything! “Life Lessons from the North: A Year in Peetabeck” uses pictures and stories to communicate
Damian’s “Top Ten Take-aways” from his amazing year-long adventure

So mark the date:
Tuesday June 1, 2010
