Excited to spend more time outside this Spring? Want to learn a new skill? Join EcoBrooks at the Edible Community Garden! Welcome to all residents, no previous gardening experience required! This is your chance to learn how to grow food, meet new people, and eat locally grown food this season. 

We'll be hosting a few ZOOM information sessions in the next week if you're interested in getting to know what we're all about. Tell your friends or even take a stroll down to the south end of Lake Stafford to see our Edible Garden in progress. 

See you soon!

About the Committee

The EcoBrooks Committee was created in Spring of 2009 and acted as a Citizen's Advisory Group steering the Municipal Sustainability Planning project.

The mandate of the Environmental Advisory Committee is to explore policies, programs and procedures which would lead to the long and short-term enhancement, preservation and protection of the environment in both local and global contexts.


Focus Areas

Focus areas of the Committee are to include:

  • Water Conservation – The preservation, control and development of water resources, both surface and groundwater, and prevention of pollution.
  • Energy Sustainability – The provision of energy such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable Energy has two key components: renewable energy and energy efficiency.
  • Waste Management – The processes involved in dealing with waste, including minimization, handling, processing, storage, recycling, transport, and final disposal.
  • Ecological Sustainability – The conservation of productivity of water, soil and ecosystems; retaining their essential functions and processes over the long term.
