The Bike Hub is Shifting into High Gear
If you’ve been following our posts, you may have heard that the Bike Hub at The Deanery Project has received a generous grant from the Department of Energy through its NS Moves Program. Funding will go toward finishing classroom renovations, building an outdoor bicycle storage space and hiring a project coordinator to host more on-site sustainable transportation programs and introduce school-based programs.
The grant was officially announced September 19th, at the Deanery, by Andrew Younger, Minister of Energy and Kevin Murphy, MLA Eastern Shore and Councillor David Hendsbee.
Minister Younger observed that “promoting ecologically friendly living is at the heart of the Deanery Project’s mission. With our support, the Deanery Project will be able to build on its community programming, and encourage more Eastern Shore residents to us sustainable transportation.”
After the announcement visitors had a tour of the Deanery Project to see first hand how we are translating our environmental goals into realities. First stop was the Bike Hub, where Lynne Pascoe pointed out special features of the workshop and talked about future plans. The tour finished up with visits to the Solar Wood Kiln, the Rocket Stove, the Sheiling classroom, and our newest tiny building, the Piccolo.
