Ecology Action Centre

A beloved EAC waste-reduction campaign.

The EAC is a hive of constant activity. Here's just a sample of what they've been up to in the past year, provided by Charlene Boyce Young, in charge of development and outreach: "We are running a second year of the Green Mobility Grants program thanks to Conserve Nova Scotia's support, helping sustainable transportation projects across the province. Our food action team put together a pilot version of the Emerald Web, linking sustainable industries together and demonstrating the market for more. Halifax Landshare project debuted, connecting gardeners with those with land to spare, and the Urban Garden project helped community gardens across the city."

Police reports say it probably wasn’t a local who laced the clam chowder with PCP on the set of Titanic. Whodunit?
