Eco Day in May
We have partnered with the Global Market to once again host “Eco Day in May” at the end of May to celebrate summer, educate the public on environmental awareness and kick off the outdoor season of the market. The day is filled with local entertainment, giveaways, environmental stewards and much more. This year Eco Day in May will be on Saturday May 27th. More info to follow!
This year the City of Brandon Community Services Dept. and Brandon Environment Committee will be showing a free screening of the very popular documentary "Call of the Forest the Forgotten Wisdom of Trees". In "Call of The Forest-- The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees", Beresford-Kroeger's journey explores our profound biological and spiritual connection to trees. From Japan to California and Ireland to Germany, to Vancouver Island across to the great Boreal Forest, Diana meets people who are taking the lead to replant, restore and protect the last of these great ancient species of forests. As the journey progresses the film explores the science, folklore, and history of this essential, and often overlooked, eco-system.
This compelling story sounds the alarm by calling for immediate action on a global scale, but at it its heart it is story of triumph, offering a simple, achieveable strategy for each of us to combat climate change by replanting forests in our own neighbourhoods, yards, and parks. The screening will take place on Wednesday April 19th at the Cultural Resource Center located at 638 Princess Avenue at 7:00p.m., doors will open at 6:30p.m. Please use East Entrance.
