FortWhyte Alive (1961 McCreary Road)
Please note: Compost giveaway has been postponed due to spring road weight restrictions.
Kick off International Compost Awareness Week with us! Only one week before Mother’s Day, we’re encouraging you to do something for Mother Earth in the second week of May.
Come watch Dirt! The Movie with us at FortWhyte Alive, and then stay after to learn about how you can make your own dirt through composting! We’ll have a presenter from Fort Whyte to talk about vermicomposting, and Jen from Nature’s Perfect Plant Food will have some vermicomposting kits for sale. This is the perfect time to launch that composting program at your home that you’ve been putting off, because Fort Whyte also has Earth Machines and kitchen collector buckets for sale, and Green Action Centre is selling compost aerators for only $20.
This event is open to families of all ages, but please be aware that the documentary is 80 minutes long and we ask you to use your discretion as to whether it is the right fit for your children.
