Summer Cycle Tour 2011

Slow Food Vancouver – SUMMER CYCLE TOUR:
came to Chilliwack and stopped at Earthworks Composting Supplies – JULY 24!

 
A beautiful day, peaking at 30° and full of sunshine, saw over 200 guests stop visit and learn about vermicomposting and Earthworks Composting Supplies. From children to the most energetic mature adults we’ve ever seen, the level of awareness and interest was invigorating. (And the chap with the chicken farm background left US with some valuable insights, in a nice reversal of the day’s flow of information.)
 
Feedback from our guests suggested that the Tour as a whole was well organized, informative and fun. Participant businesses on the Chilliwack Tour were welcoming and personable, allowing guests real hands-on access to their workings. And apparently Earthworks fit that bill as well (thank you for the compliments ladies!)
 
Thank you Slow Food Vancouver for the receptive audience, and Tourism Chilliwack for excellent coordination.
