Fundraising and Vendors

 As usual we are doing a little fundraising for another great project in our community. We will have great prizes up for raffle to help raise funds for the Urban Nature School Initiative. Please stop by the raffle table at the show.

Carp Ridge Learning Centre, in partnership with Cambridge Street Public School, is launching their Urban Nature School Initiative. This initiative will raise funds to build an outdoor, nature classroom in the heart of downtown, Ottawa, to be used for outdoor, play-based, and sustainable education opportunities. It is a joint venture and will also be utilized in the summer months for an Urban Nature Art program offered to children with and without special needs. In the school year, it will provide the school with an outdoor learning environment emphasizing loose, natural, and sustainable parts.

We need to raise $10,000 by April, 2012, when "Evergreen" will be implementing their design and build process in collaboration with the students. We envision a permanent teepee, small trails, more container gardens for growing vegetables, a climbing space, a canoe, an outdoor solar oven, and much more. The space will also be open to community health and social groups for programming use.
