Hey, hey, hey! The INDEVOURS are moving at super-speed to get fundraisers up and running, and our first two are ready for orders! Additional info is below.
Here’s why you should buy from us: I am representing INDEVOURS, a student-run organization at the University of Waterloo whose members dedicate the fourth year of their International Development studies to living in and working with communities in the developing world. In order to help our members offset some of the significant costs associated with this field placement, we are hosting various fundraising events. The funds raised will assist us in putting our theoretical acumen into practise as we strive to achieve positive and sustainable social, environmental and economic development for our communities at home and abroad. We value optimism, education, and stewardship, and will work for change by harnessing diversity, innovation and opportunity. Please visit www.indevours.wordpress.com to learn more about us.
Elmira Poultry is super tasty, raised free-range in the area, locally processed, and the different kinds of packaged meat are listed above. I have also attached the PDF sell sheet below, so if you'd like to download that for easier reading, feel free! If you want to order some meat, please submit your order to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 30th. I’ll need your name, phone number, and the call number and quantity of boxes you want. Money needs to also be submitted by May 30th in cash or cheque form (made out to St. Paul's University College, with INDEVOURS written on the memo line) – contact me to make arrangements. Chicken will be delivered Saturday, June 15th from 2-4 pm at St. Paul’s University College. Once again, if you can’t make it for that day and time, contact me to make other arrangements, and I’ll see what I can do.
We are partnering with RainBarrel.ca to run a fundraiser selling rain barrels in Waterloo. Orders are now being taken for a June 22nd pickup date at the Kitchener Farmers' Market (300 King St. E). Rainbarrel.ca reclaims food grade barrels to be reused as rain barrels, each of which comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito filter basket, an overflow adaptor that permits multiple barrels to be connected in series, 1.2m of overflow hose and a spigot that attaches directly to a garden hose. The price is $50 per barrel, and barrels can be ordered online at www.rainbarrel.ca/indevours.
Rain barrels capture and store rainwater collected from roofs through downspouts. They provide chlorine-free and fluoride-free water, which is ideal for flowers, vegetables, lawns, shrubs and trees. Collected water has a number of other uses including washing cars, cleaning floors, laundry and more. These many uses can provide cost savings and conservation opportunities for every homeowner, especially those who pay to have water trucked in, use a well or have a water meter installed. Environmental benefits of using rain barrels include reducing reliance and draw on city water, healthier plants because there are no additives such as chlorine in the rainwater, and reduces storm runoff that can pick up contaminants on its way into the local water supply.
So, what do you think? If you are interested in purchasing yummy chicken from Elmira Poultry, or eco-friendly rain barrels for your garden, let me know as soon as you can!
