Week 26 / Greg McMillan of TheGreenHub.ca takes a break from scouring the internet for a weekend blog about This Really Old House Goes Green project, which features the green renovation of a war-time house in Brantford, Ontario
ADAM HISLOP of TheGreenHub.ca was busier than usual this past week – and for anyone who knows him, that means he was very, very busy.
In addition to juggling video projects for Atomic Spark, he was putting together the latest TROHGG video with Flying Camel’s Lisa Herbert, producing a Green Living Show video for TheGreenHub.ca, another for the first business profile by TheGreenHub.ca Communications – it features TROHGG team member ProQuip International – and packaging all the new content on our revamped website at TheGreenHub.ca
Somehow, he also found time to appear as guest speaker at the Brant Federal Green Party annual general meeting. His topic, not political in any way, was, surprise, surprise: The past, present and future of TheGreenHub.ca and how we aim to continue taking a leadership role in all things green. He said he got much positive feedback ….
I took in an Earth Week event at a solar symposium hosted by the Brant Community Foundation at Laurier Brantford’s Research and Academic Centre. TROHGG team members Dara Bowser and ProQuip’s Sam Tavernese were also on hand, along with Brant MPP Dave Levac, and local councillors, including Jan Vanderstelt of Ward 1. What we got, thankfully, was plain talk about solar power, with keynote speaker Grant Flint of Halton Enablers of Renewable Energy. Other speakers included Wray Brimmer, on solar panels for swimming pools, and Mark Simpson from Brantford Power.
We had a tie for Facebook post of the week: First, new mom Angela DeSalvo of Empirical Photographic Arts: “In the studio all by myself … hee, hee, hee … but who knew checking e-mails would be considered an outing.” …. Then we just had to add this post from Leanne Wood Newman of Flying Camel: “First workout with trainer. She’s mean and I can’t walk. Lunges and squats suck.” We hear you, Leanne …
We got off to a running start with our new guest green bloggers’ feature on TheGreenHub.ca, with two of the more notables added being Annie Szczygielski of the David Suzuki Foundation and Gerry Ellis, a veteran photographer/writer whose career has included projects for the New York Times and National Geographic … we want to hear from interested green bloggers living in The Green Hub, as well.
