FolkU Field Trip
Fire-scaping our Community!

Join Autumn and host Manda Aufochs Gillespie for this special Folk U Field Trip (simulcast on the radio) event where you will learn both the how and why of firescaping with native plants AND get a chance to see and learn how.

Friday June 3rd 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the CCEDA Tent at the Mansons Village Commons.

In this free workshop geared towards adults, Autumn will be sharing knowledge around Fire-scaping and talking about its importance in our community. This workshop will educate folks on how to decrease likelihood of fire-spread in our neighbourhoods and local ecosystems, thus empowering us to take action in Fire-scaping at our home and in our neighbourhoods! We will spend the last hour Fire-scaping and Fire-scape designing Mansons Hall, the Radio Station, FOCI Office and CCEDA Lands together!

The information in this workshop will help you achieve a lower Threat Assessment Risk. Once we've learned about Fire-scaping and put it to practice at the Hall, take your knowledge back home to your neighbourhoods and work together to get woody debris out to the roadside for the June 19th woody-debris pick up.

Come join us to learn how to take action in safe-guarding your home, neighbourhood and local ecosystems. Please bring pruners and gloves if you have them.
