October 30th: Resilient Palgrave Walking Eco-Fair


The ongoing COVID19 pandemic continues to test the resilience of individuals and communities across the world, but what does it mean to BE resilient? Communities with a strong sense of themselves and a connection to the place that they live are likely to be more resilient to current and future challenges like COVID and Climate Change. In the past year, residents of Palgrave have been creating a vision for building resilience through the “Resilient Palgrave” Project, hosted by the Oak Ridges Institute for Applied Sustainability and Palgrave Rotary Club. On Saturday 30th October this phase of the project ends with a Walking Eco-Fair co-hosted with EcoCaledon, linking across Highway 50 from The White Birch Day Centre and Shoppe to the Palgrave United Church. Come and join local residents and participate in “resilience” themed workshops, Repair Cafes, StuffSwap, a Community Scavenger Hunt (with Prizes!), a guided TRCA walk – and learn about the Town s ‘Resilient Caledon’ Community Climate Change Plan, EVs, Bike Brampton, Palgrave Trail Runners, the Community Climate Council and much, much more! You don’t have to be a Palgrave resident to come and join the fun and learn how you make your community more Resilient!
