This is an international event focused on finding solutions to rural waste problems. Exhibition space is still available. We are seeking innovators in ecological innovations in waste management to share their ideas with decision-makers and concerned citizens!

ECOFLUENCY: INNOVATIONS IN ECOLOGICAL WASTE MANAGEMENT FOR TOWNS, FARMS, AND RURAL HOUSEHOLDS
A two-day fair and forum on Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4, 2003 in Picton, Prince Edward County, Ontario to feature creative waste management solutions for towns and rural areas. The fair and forum will concentrate on three waste streams: sewage/septage, garbage, and manure.
Participants, drawn primarily from southern and eastern Ontario and the states bordering on the eastern Great Lakes, will explore safer, more environmentally sustainable, and ultimately more cost-effective ways of dealing with the waste we create. Participants will include: innovators in ecological waste management, municipal representatives and staff, farmers and farm organizations, small businesses, youth, environmental researchers and educators, and concerned citizens.
