Presenter: Amanda Baker

woman holding a container Amanda has lived in this Region for most of her life, and had always recycled, but she wanted to do more. After discovering the Zero Waste lifestyle, she quickly learned that there was much more that she could do to reduce what she sent to the landfill, and has been working towards that goal ever since. She now knows that making small changes as she moves toward a Zero Waste lifestyle can have a huge positive impact on the environment!

We encourage the use of active transportation such as walking or biking. The house is just off the Iron Horse Trail. It is also easily accessible by GRT bus routes that use Queen and have stops near Mill St. If you drive, please consider carpooling with others you know are attending.


You are welcome to use Schneider Ave or David Street parking. The Victoria Park Pavilion parking lot is also free to use and only a few minutes walk to the Reep House. Please do not park at the Schneider Haus or Mitchell St lots (click see map)
