New Hampshire students are coming to Montreal!

For the 6th year in a row, the Eco-quartier NDG will have the pleasure of hosting a dozen high school students from New Hampshire. The students (ranging in age from 14 to 16 years old) chose to come to NDG during their March break (March 6th to 9th) to volunteer their time during the day. In the evenings they will visit the city and learned about local culture. They will cover all of their own costs, and stay in a youth hostel at night.

Over the years, the students have done a variety of projects, and now we know what activities they like to do best. This year the students will likely collect worms from our office vermicomposter so that we can use the humus formed. They will inspect food waste bins and communicate with residents if there is anything found that cannot be composted. They might also help to clean up the neighborhood by taking down illegal posters on poles & bus stops. If its too cold or snowy, we’ll stay in the office and make posters.

If you see the New Hampshire students in NDG, please be sure to say hi (in English if possible as they don’t speak much French!)
