This year, Tiny Township is encouraging the community to rally behind the Earth Week theme ‘Invest in Our Planet’.

Running from April 17 to 21, the theme serves to highlight the importance of dedicating time, resources and energy to solving climate change and other environmental issues.

“By being mindful of our effect on the earth, we can make small changes that add up to create a  positive environmental impact,” said Mayor David Evans.

“From participating in litter pickups to  planting pollinator-friendly plants we can create a more sustainable future for ourselves and future  generations.”

The township hopes residents get inspired and take action by investing in our planet and taking part in activities that promote a green community.

To that end, Tiny is hosting various activities, which include a cooking class using local and sustainable ingredients, a presentation from its partners at Severn Sound Environmental  Association about shoreline naturalization and invasive species, a guided nature hike at Awenda Provincial Park and more.

Throughout the week, the township will also be giving away free seed packets at the municipal office to help the community attract pollinators, will host a book swap library will accept e-waste (electronic waste).
