Two day long symposium all about eco-living

Local residents will now be able to enjoy an extra day at the 4th Annual Sustainable Living Symposium. The event organized by 11 regional non-profits has expanded from one day to two. The event is held on the last weekend of March with the Saturday, March 28, featuring workshops and a trade show at Loyalist College. New this year is a Green Homes Bus Tour on Sunday.

“This event is getting bigger every year” says Caroline Zawadzki, symposium co-ordinator, “the event books solid every year, and to accommodate the growing interest a second day was added.”

The symposium focus is on local solutions, local services, and local businesses. Local experts encourage Quinte citizens to explore earth-friendly and cost-effective solutions from food and agriculture, home renovation and building, to renewable energy, landscaping and healthy and responsible living.

Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required. For program details and to register visit www.quintesustainability.ca or call Quinte Conservation at 613.968.3434 ext 131.
