The West Carleton community is focused on sustainable local food and energy conservation.
Interested in volunteering with Sustain West Carleton? Contact the West Carleton Coordinator.
Sustain West Carleton and Stonecrest School Council (SES) have collaborated to help households understand the ways they can reduce heating/cooling bills through a home energy audit.
Residents who booked a home energy audit before December 31st, 2016, paid only $200 (instead of $350). For every audit booked 5% of the full cost of the audit will be donated to Stonecrest School to support the outdoor classroom and greening projects.
A home energy audit is an in-depth look at elements of your home including insulation levels, heating/cooling/ventilation systems, and uses a blower door test to determine the amount of air leakage into and out of your home. Conducted by a certified home energy adviser, you will discover ways to improve your home and save money.
Local Food- Deep Roots Food Hub
Empowering West Carleton residents to grow, store, distribute, prepare and preserve healthy food.
Sustain West Carleton supports the actions of the Deep Roots Food Hub, a group of residents working to build a root cellar in West Carlton.
Once built the root cellar will provide local farmers a place to store their harvest into the fall and winter months. Long term storage allows local farmers to grow and sell more produce and gives residents greater access to fresh local food.
