Hops and Harvest – Sort to Divert

Join us at the “Hops and Harvest” event for a wonderful volunteer opportunity that tackles climate change and our environmental impact.

Not everything thrown in the waste belongs there, and some materials are put to better use in our local recycling centers, where it can become something new. Let’s keep waste out of landfills by helping people with putting materials in their proper place. Each and every extra hand is appreciated, and we hope to see you there!

This impactful program links volunteers to waste diversion projects in the city, resulting in meaningful, measurable benefits to improve the health of the environment. Help us create a cleaner, greener, more environmentally responsible community – we all need to work together.

Location:

Area 8 Conservation Area at 5347 Steeles Ave W, Milton, ON

Time:

September 23, 24, 25th.
Dates include: Sept 23 at 2PM to 9PM, Sept 24 at 11AM to 11PM, Sept 25 at 11AM to 5PM.

Sign up to volunteer here.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.  

The HEN Office resides on Treaty 22, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. For more information on Treaty 22 go to: http://mncfn.ca/treaty2223/
