Environment the focus of market fair on campus

Gardening, beekeeping and renewable energy will be among the many topics highlighted during an event on campus Saturday, Oct. 28.

The Let’s Learn Together Market Fair, taking place at Pond Inlet from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will bring together experts and community leaders to discuss waste management, water conservation and other environment-related concepts and activities.

The free family-friendly market fair is hosted by the Niagara Farm Project, in conjunction with Brock Student Life and Community Experience, Healthy Kids Niagara, Textile Waste Diversion and Social Enterprise Niagara.

Various community organizations will have booths set up to provide information and will be running a series of workshops throughout the afternoon.

Participants are encouraged to bring seeds to be include in the Niagara Wide Seed Library, as well as healthy nonperishable food items to support Niagara Farm Project’s food drive and low-cost food program.

Gently-used clothing donations will also be accepted for a clothing drive organized by Textile Waste Diversion.
