From energy efficiency to energy generation, local foods to waste reduction, horticulture to recreation; there’s something for everyone at the “North Grenville Sustainability Fair!

PLUS! Round off the day with percussion professionals “Junkyard Symphony” performing their “Eco-Circus” at 3pm in the Municipal Theatre.

Share your ideas and inspire others: If your family, community group, church group, youth group, school Green team or just you and a bunch of your friends have a sustainable activity that you would like to share with the community WE WANT TO KNOW!
