Pumpkins for Pigs

This year, OSEAN issued a call for pumpkins. Anyone who preferred to give their pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns to a farm rather than putting them in their compost were encouraged to drop them off at 2 different locations for pick up later by a local pig farmer. Given the huge interest – perhaps the pumpkin parade will be an annual event!

Climate Change – Ottawa’s Official Plan

April 13, 2019 Earth Day Event

OSEAN participated in the Earth Day event at Hunt Club-Riverside Park Community Centre last Saturday. Several well known Ottawans joined us for some fun playing the Minute-To-Win-It Plastic Sorting Game to see how well we could sort a pile of plastic in 1 minute. Most of us did very well but there were a few tricky items that Erin provided some educational guidance on.

John Fraser, our Ottawa South MPP, good heartedly joined in on the fun and maybe learned a thing or two about what can and cannot be recycled. It’s not always straightforward!
Les Schram from the Green Party joined Aija at the OSEAN table inside after learning about cloth diapers, beeswax food wraps and other OSEAN activities.
