Welcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.
This week’s challenge encourages you to:
Attend a community workshop! With the vast array of community-based events and workshops at the tips of your fingers in Kingston, I challenge you to sign up and learn something new. For example, did you know you can compost your pet waste? Hearthmakers Energy Cooperative, a member of Green Communities Canada will be hosting a series entitled: Compost Pet Waste at Home this coming July. The workshop will teach attendees how to safely dispose of pet waste by going over how composters, manure digesters, and mini-septic systems work to break down waste safely. The compost can then be used as fertilizer for non-edible trees and bushes. Attendance is free or by donation; register here. Or maybe you are interested in yoga? If so, consider attending one of the free Sunday Morning Yoga sessions in Battery Park. For dates and times, click here. Whatever activity you choose, approach it with an open mind and an eagerness to learn!
