BEECHFEST! Huge Success!

Over 3,000 people took in our annual festival on Beechwood this month reveling in the sounds of Jeremy Fisher and Rise Ashen, tasting delicious food from 20 different vendors, having a refreshing Bicycle Brewery brew and celebrating with their neighbours.
 
Here’s some interesting facts about BeechFest:
 
  • 2 GARBAGE BINS: Thanks to Ottawa Reduces green team 3000 people produced only 2 cans of garbage. We also filled 20 compost bins, and 30 bags of recycling
  •  Bicycle Craft Brewery made a very generous donation to the Vanier Community Association from their sales that night and all the cans were recycled by Ottawa Reduces
  • BeechFest partners with the John Howard society to hire some of their clients to help with key event positions
  • Sponsors like Chartwells New EdinburghDesjardinsMetro and Natalie Belovic make this event possible.
  • MP Mona Fortier, and councillors Mathieu Fleury and Rawlson King were present and give out more than 1000 cobbs of corn
