Earth Month with DECAGreen
April is Earth Month, and in this year that has drawn us together so powerfully while keeping us physically apart, we felt need now more than ever to honour this planet and our place on it. The DECA Green committee brought you a month of “Couchside Climate Action” — small ways you can make a big difference without leaving your home/neighbourhood. Follow us on Instagram to see our suggestions (and enjoy beautiful graphics from Corbin Creative!)
“DECA ZERO” Workshops
DECA Green partnered with the Danforth Mosaic BIA to bring you four workshops in the month of April. Each session featured a presentation from our local experts, followed by a Q&A.
Mend your Clothes to Reduce Textile Waste with FABRIC SPARK
Don’t replace…repair. Shirley shows us how to make repairs to well loved clothes, with a focus on items such as leggings and pant knees. You can also check out her presentation slides with all the techniques she covered.
Bicycle Readiness with THE CYCLEPATH
April 8 was our first workshop, where we learned essentials like rules of the road, how to safely lock up a bike, and how to fix a flat from Spencer at The Cyclepath. You can watch the workshop recording here:
Stocks and soups with DICKIE’S COOKING SCHOOL
April 15 was our stocks workshop, where Lisa Dickie taught us everything we needed to know about how to make delicious food from veggie scraps. Check out Lisa’s blog for lots of great recipes!
Sustainable Living and Gardening with THE RE PLACE
This Earth Day workshop showed us how to make an herb garden out of an old trunk and gave us a great tour of The Re.Place!
You can catch the recording here (minus a couple of minutes at the beginning–sorry for the tech difficulties!)
