End of Summer ….

Hard to believe the Labour Day Weekend is almost upon us and “back to school” and “back to work” is being uttered under tentative breaths throughout Grey Bruce and beyond. For the lucky ones who are looking forward to getting back at it, this time of year offers challenges and opportunities galore in getting to know new people, exploring new courses and projects, and finding out what everyone did over their somewhat short summer.

For GBSusNet, projects are where it’s at these days and the one’s in the works include – WaterWORKS and EnergyWORKS events at local schools, Collective Coffeehouse events in Paisely (Back Eddies – Thursday Sept 25th) and

Flesherton at The Bicycle Cafe (Thursday, October 16th at 7:00 PM)

as well as a 2nd Sustainable Living Workshop at Kimbercote Farm near Kimberly in the Beaver Valley (Saturday, October 25th).

We are also continuing work on our Sustainability Asset Map (SAM), a Composting Pilot Project in Brockton; Film Plastic Recycling; Bruce Power Beach Party Waste Management Project as well as working with our Intern Amanda Stanger. Check out the projects tab on  for more info on these and other projects.

Let us know if you’ve got a project idea for your community we can help facilitate!!!!

Waterlution Weekend Workshop 2013

We’re set to host an exciting Waterlution weekend workshop on October 4, 5, and 6th, in Deemerton, Ontario, just slightly east of Mildmay. This will be a great learning experience for post-secondary students or young professionals working or beginning their work in the field of water management, study, resources, etc. For more information, please contact Bruce Davidson at 519-881-0884.

CareerWORKS 2013

waterworks-2012-035

Initial meetings are being held with local people to launch CareerWORKS 2013 as well as a series of “social enterprise” workshops in Grey Bruce. The track record for the range of CareerWORKS programs i.e., FoodWORKS and WaterWORKS has set the stage to move the program to a “board wide” setting. Folks at the BWDSB have expressed interest in the program…stay tuned.
