Green Venture is hosting a community BBQ at our EcoHouse to unveil its revamped Community Garden and east Hamilton’s first public electric charging vehicle station. This free event will take place on Saturday, July 27, 2013 from 11am – 2pm and all are welcome. The Community Garden has moved to a plot system in which members of the community may buy their own plot for the summer for a nominal fee and harvest their own crop. New, informative signage has been added to the garden to foster a learning experience for plot holders, volunteers, and anyone who tours the garden. The new electric vehicle charging station is unique to this area of Hamilton and is available for the public to use. The average electric vehicle can drive 160-320 kilometres with one 4-8 hour charge at this station. Electric vehicles reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions entering our air through gas-powered vehicles and therefore play a part in reducing the impacts of climate change. Green Venture is a non-profit, community-based organization which strives to assist people in living more sustainably every day. Many outreach programs are offered across the spectrum of environmental issues, from green gardening tips to educational programming to sustainable water and energy usage. Staff members will be on hand at the community BBQ for anyone who has questions about our programs, products, upcoming events, and volunteer opportunities. BBQ options for vegetarians and vegans will be available and there will be a kid’s craft table.
