Green Venture Digs Into Doggy Doo-Doo (again)

Pet Waste Composting Workshops – April 11 & 28, 2012

For immediate distribution

Hamilton:  Winter’s waning means deep doggy-doo deposits are suddenly surfacing.  Every time it rains, runoff contaminated with pet waste finds its way into Hamilton Harbour.  Using a pet waste composter protects water quality in the harbour and other watersheds, and saves valuable space in landfills.

Back by popular demand, Green Venture is hosting two free pet waste composting workshops this April at EcoHouse (22 Veevers Drive, Hamilton).  Participants will learn why to use, how to build, and how to maintain a pet waste composter.  Everyone will leave the workshop with a pet waste composter in hand.

Workshops are scheduled for Wednesday April 11, 6:30-8:00 pm and Saturday April 28, 10:00-11:30 am.  For more information, or to register for a workshop, please call 905-540-8787 ext. 114, or email  Spaces are limited and will fill up quickly.  Participants must register in advance.

Green Venture is a community-based non-profit organization committed to helping residents live more sustainably at home, at work, and in their daily lives. Funding for these workshops is generously provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the RBC Blue Water Project.
