Here's what we're doing:

An evening that combines all of our favourite things: art & music, food & beverage, and  mingling with friends & colleagues! Alternatives Journal (A\J) and friends are throwing two incredible, impromptu celebratory events – one in Kitchener (March 21st) and one in Guelph (March 27th) – that bring artistry, nature and people together for an evening of greenbelt-inspired enchantment.

Wellington County & Waterloo Region contain a wealth of farmlands, forests, wetlands and other natural areas around our cities, towns and villages – and are in the Grand River Watershed. Amid the celebrations in bright spirit , we’ll be learning & sharing how those of us in urban and near-urban lands can and will support our waterways, agricultural lands, natural spaces and other important environmental areas.
