This week, TinyHomestead was featured in the McGill Daily article titled "Diversifying Environmentalism". This piece focused on the lack of diversity within sustainability, and how marginalized communities are disproportionally affected by environmental destruction.
"The concept of sustainability is held up by three major pillars, which are social, environmental, and economic. ‘Mainstream’ environmental movements have sought to adapt in a way that intersects these three pillars. However, studies are increasingly showing the lack of diversity within environmental sectors and related mainstream movements. This homogeneity in environmental movements limits not only their accessibility, but also their effects. Issues related to the environment tend to have disproportionate effects on those who face economic or social oppression."

Exciting news! I'm offering a weekend workshop through SSMU mini-courses on Urban Sustainability Skills. Registration is open to the public, and will be open until midnight on February 13th. This workshop will be on March 21 & 22, from 12:30-4:30pm. We'll be discussing what sustainability actually means, how we can source food locally, and we'll get into the kitchen to make applesauce and can pickles. Check out the full course agenda and register here.
Hope to see you there!
