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 are feeling the need now more than ever to honour this planet and our place on it. The DECA Green committee is bringing you a month of “Couchside Climate Action” — small ways you can make a big difference without leaving your home/neighbourhood. Follow us on Instagram for our suggestions (and enjoy beautiful graphics from Corbin Creative!) We will also send out workshop info and reminders on our blog, so make sure you subscribe!

“DECA ZERO” Workshops

DECA Green has partnered with the Danforth Mosaic BIA to bring you four workshops in the month of April. Each session will feature a presentation from our local experts, followed by a Q&A.

Thursdays in April, 8-9 pm via Zoom

Register on eventbrite, using the link in each workshop description below.

April 29: Mend your Clothes to Reduce Textile Waste with FABRIC SPARK

Don’t replace…repair. We have creative ways to upcycle your clothes. Join Shirley to learn how to make repairs to well loved clothes. She will focus on items such as leggings and pant knees. Bring your questions.

If you are willing to try during the demonstration; thread, needles, scissors, embroidery thread, fabric for patches, pins. There will be a discussion on many ways to embellish repairs. REGISTER HERE
