Welcome Jamie!

Green Venture welcomes our newest Education Program Support team member, Jamie MacLean…

“I’ve had my eyes on Green Venture for quite some time, and I am thrilled to be working with education programs. I studied Environmental Sciences and Biology at Trent University and have since been involved in outdoor education and sustainable farm /garden practices. Working alongside an organization that focuses on living a greener, more sustainable life is the perfect place to be!

My favorite programs here at Green Venture are Vermicomposting and the Smoothie Bike (wouldn’t want to get those two mixed up!). The Vermicompost bins get kids thinking about their food waste and how it can be reused in the garden to grow new fruits and veggies! The Smoothie Bike is a great activity to get active and show the power of human energy and learn about local whole foods. Plus, we all get to try some tasty smoothies at the end!

When I’m not here talking about my love for soil, you can catch me riding my bike around town, reading some gushy books or playing derby with Hammer City.

I can’t wait to meet your students. To book a tour, presentation or smoothie bike. Please contact Virginia at 905 540 8787 x154 or education@greenventure.ca or visit our website for more information.”
