October 16-21 is HEAG Green Week
Visit Trash Mountain on Martin's Way
October 18, 2006
The Hamilton Environmental Action Group (HEAG) is sponsoring Green Week from October 16-21. The week's activities will include a Farmer's Market and a film, "The Future of Food." Trash Mountain, on Martin's Way, is a tangible reminder of the enormity of student waste. HEAG estimates that since January, Hamilton has generated more than 630 tons of waste, costing more than $50,000.
On Tuesday, Oct. 17, at 8 p.m. "The Future of Food" will be screened in the Red Pit at 8 p.m. This is a documentary on how genetically modified foods are quietly sneaking their way into the American food supply. On Wednesday there will be a farmer's market on Martin's Way from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. The Cider Mill along with other local vendors will be there selling their goods. On Thursday a guest speaker, David Yarrow, is coming to talk about "Intuitive Earth Awareness Entering the Mind of Nature" in the Red Pit at 8 p.m. Friday will feature the Glen Clean-up from 1-4 p.m., followed by the Green Week BBQ from 7-10 p.m. The bbq will be at the Glen House with food and live music.
