The day will Day-long Green Event with Co-Sponsors DotGreen and Neustar, a chance to learn about green efforts of the ICANN host city, Toronto.  We will begin the day with a Ferry Ride to the Toronto Islands “Ward’s Island” where we will have a brief ecological tour and learn about the islands conservation efforts, participate in a native tree planting and then enjoy an organic picnic lunch.  We’ll then return by ferry to the mainland where we’ll depart for Evergreen Brick Works, a “community environmental center that inspires and equips visitors to live, work and play more sustainably”.  We’ll do a guided green tour of the Brick Works, and visit the current exhibit “MOVE: The Transportation Expo” which is a multi-sensory tour of transportation and an “exploration of innovative ideas and technologies needed to build and connect our communities in efficient and sustainable ways.”  These unique opportunities will show hi-lights of Toronto and their efforts toward a greener city.

The day is organized with a little assistance from fbsc.

The Incredible World of Bugs:

Earth Day 2012 Video

Beneficial bugs are nature’s gift to a garden.  Trees, flowers, vegetables and herbs attract different bugs, birds and butterflies.

I love ladybugs, hummingbirds, dragonflies and butterflies.

For Earth Day 2012, I am looking forward to hearing about The Incredible World of Bugs, and learn more on how they contribute to our gardens to make everything natural and sustainable for the Earth.

When we learn about the ways of doing little act, it becomes a big impact and cultivates sustainable sensibilities.
