"Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home"
This film is a feature documentary that describes how an average North American family impacts the environment through their production of garbage.

After his son's birth, Andrew Nisker (writer and director) felt compelled to examine the average urban family's relationship with waste. The film documents the McDonald family's experience after they agree to keep every scrap of garbage that they create for three months. Nisker then takes them (and us) to find out where it all goes and what it's doing to the world.

From the website: "Everyday life under a microscope has never been so revealing. By the end of this trashy odyssey, you are truly inspired to revolutionize your lifestyle for the sake of future generations."

This timely 75 minute film will be followed by lively discussion. Refreshments are available for purchase.

Hope to see you there!

Just to remind you

Junction Tree Tour - July 25th

Saturday, July 25 - 2pm to 4pm

Join LEAF arborist Todd Irvine as he explores the neighbourhood to uncover both historic and newly planted native trees. Presented in partnership with Green 13 and the Junction Residents Association, the Junction tree tour showcases the survivors of the urban forest. From back streets to grand boulevards, the Junction is home to a diverse array of trees including the rare black oak often associated with High Park. Wander down a hidden alley to discover a grove of black-locust trees growing out of cracks in the asphalt. Peek into backyards and turn your gaze skyward to admire the massive canopies of native white, red and pin oaks as well as the elegant boughs of black walnuts. You will be introduced to a spectacular font yard garden that is a butterfly haven certified by Monarch Watch at the University of Kansas.
Meet at: Southwest corner of Dundas St. W and Keel St.
Suggested donation: 5$
