Russell Lake Takes Root Community Tree Planting - Successfully completed Oct. 5

"To everyone who came out to Russell Lake Takes Root Oct 5, I can't thank you enough! From the businesses who made the event so hospitable to the community members who helped plant 1600 trees in just under two hours, what an amazing demonstration of how communities come together. I hope people enjoyed themselves today and that you might consider joining us the next time we have an event! Photos from today may be posted in the future on the HRM Diverse Facebook page..

SAVE THE BEES, PLEASE

Thank you for joining our “Save the Bees” campaign.

We don’t take the time to breathe in the life around us and do something to protect it often enough, so I want to sincerely thank you for signing our new petition.

Although I know launching a new campaign was the right thing to do, our accountant keeps telling me not to do things like this “because it’s not funded”. He’s right; it’s NOT funded and we have absolutely no resources to fund another -- even small -- campaign.
