Trees with a Story: The Bus Tour
We have some amazing specimens of trees that dot our landscape. Not only do these specimens provide shade, shelter and food; many have stories attached to them by the people who have lived in close proximity to them over the years. Believing these trees and their personal stories are of interest to all of you the Resource Stewardship SD&G Council has organized a “Trees with a Story Bus Tour”. The tour is scheduled for Sunday, September 26, 2010 from 1 – 5 p.m., fee $5.00 per person, refreshments included. The tour will visit interesting trees in South Glengarry County and will feature special Guest Mark Burleton, Manager of Grounds, Green houses and Official Residences of the National Capital Commission.
This is a family friendly event. Pre-registration is a must! Limited Space Available. Contact and registration available at Resource Stewardship SD&G Council, 613-933-7671 or email@example.com
Eco tip of the week.
Your produce purchases often contain chemicals and dirt that is not visible to the eye. Remember to regularly wash out your reusable shopping bags. Consider using a removable washable container in your reusable shopping bag for your meat purchases. This will insure meat juices do not breed bacteria uncontrollably in your shopping bag.
