Small Change Fund donors helped to protect the culture and language of the Tlicho people of the Northwest Territories by supporting the creation of a summer jobs program which focussed directly on transferring land skills and traditional knowledge from Tlicho Elders to Tlicho youth. Thank you!
The Permaculture Project GTA (TPPGTA) thanks Small Change for awarding us the Microgrant in the amount of $3215 for our upcoming Convergence Event called Toronto Spring Convergence 2013 April 26, 27, 28 2013.
The Toronto Spring Convergence 2013 is an annual event organized by The Permaculture project GTA’s Toyin Coker and team to be three days of training and guided action in Toronto wrapped up with a Market of organic foods and goods on the final day. Inviting Toronto’s Changemakers to an information sharing and strategic ation weekend, we celebrate our achievements in implementing sustainable projects and engagement advancements in the GTA.
By offering two days of workshops and training we at TPPGTA are introducing changemakers to our leadership action program bootcamp style. While carrying out highly crafted actions around the GTA, participants will learn new skills around facilitating future actions with their local groups that are safe, informed and influential. We will explore advanced activities in urban gardening like building cold frames, sheet mulching, using rainbarrels, chicken farming, bee keeping/honey production, composting and more.
We thank Small Change Fund for helping us to ensure there will be threed ays this spring where change makers will converge at TPPGTA’s HeadQuarters for Workshops, Healthy Organic Food, Hands on activities and networking with other change makers while implementing a number of greening projects in the City.
