A busy month!​
TREA would like to thank all the folks that attended its Keeping It Natural fashion show, held Oct 18.
Everyone was pleased with the organizing of the event and the 3 shops that supplied natural material products or recycled clothing to view were great to work with. Thank you as well to the vendors, and the many volunteers and helpers - Adrienne, Jim, Mila, Stephen, Allison, Marla, Sharon, Don, Melissa, and a number of folks who were modelling the clothes for us.

An ambitious project, also timely to fit in with Waste Week! Thanks again to Reimagine Co and Renewi Canada for contributing their events to a London Waste Week message.

Check out the excellent photos that Don took HERE.
Waste
TREA is pleased to continue its one-on-one trial project first delivered in Woodfield this summer on to the neighbourhood of Kensington Village this past month. Again, surveys on what prevents citizens from being waste free, the barriers around packaging and accessing local food were asked to gain perspective on further TREA priorities in promoting environmental action. We are in discussion with our next neighbourhood to work within the new year.
Compost
TREA is currently working with two high schools to help them establish composting sites.

TREA will also be participating on a panel with the City and other experts to discuss how to overcome the barriers of composting and potentially gaining green bin. This event is being hosted by Western graduate students:
               
               Where: North Campus Building n Room NCB 117.
               When: Nov 23, 11:30-1:30 p.m.

Please register on Eventbrite here. Thanks to Jude, Maureen and Stephen for supporting these projects!
TREA’s table at VegFest on Nov 10 at the Western Fair Agriplex was very worthwhile. Lots to do – there were over 150 vendors, a children’s area, and speakers, etc.  VegFest is held in other cities too.

Find out more here. There is a great video now from it now on FB, check it out here.
TREA supported Friends of UA’s next steps meeting recently. Participants are very excited about projects that all members can get involved in next year – a big item in 2019 will be an orchard redevelopment.
