⚠️ Caution: Raccoon crossing ⚠️ Last week, at #greenpeopleofpeel, we used unstructured play as a city planning tool to visualize what our ideal Peel would look like. Bike lanes, transit channels, green infrastructure and wildlife corridors were some items people envisioned Peel having. Thanks to everyone who came out and a huge thank you to @venturexcanada for letting us use their space! #urban#planning#cityplanning#unstructuredplay#raccoon#peelregion
Congrats to all of our award winners last night at #greenpeopleofpeel! Thank you to @sheridannurseries for supplying 4 native maple trees as our awards...We are thrilled the awards will look beautiful, clean the air and grow strong roots in our community. #peelregion
A huge thank you to everyone who made this year's #ecobuzz an amazing experience for all! We had great workshops where students learned about water, eco-fashion, environmentally friendly beauty products, waste and much more! And a shout-out to @cvc_ca, @sierraclub and UTM for donating to our raffle prizes!
Today we not only celebrated the love of our relationships with our community, family and friends, but our relationship to food. Eating and sharing good food can be a great way to show love to yourself and others! ❤🌱 We planted a bunch of pea shoots today that we hope to share with the community at Green People of Peel on March 1st! #valentinesday#love#community#goodfood#sprout#healthyfood
We at Ecosource love knowing all the good happening in the #environment when it feels like there is so much bad! “The Optimistic Environmentalist” by David R Boyd is a very positive read with good news about people making a change for the better! #bookoftheweek#optimistic
