*Volunteer/Donation Opportunity* Yorklands Green Hub is calling-out to all ages who like to draw, paint, take photos or create art in any medium: Let Yorklands Green Hub be your inspiration and help us raise money to keep Guelph green!

We are asking for donations of art work, 10 inches by 12 inches OR SMALLER, ready to hang in our exhibition at 42 Carden St that runs from November 2 to 30.

All work should be inspired by visiting our site at the former Ontario Reformatory at 785 York Rd. (Bus route #4 York Rd). Stroll through Guelph’s piece of “country in the city” and create art inspired by our vision for Yorklands Green Hub: a sustainable environmental learning centre.

A silent auction of all work will take place during the month of November. If your work sells, you will receive 20% of the total cost; the rest will go to Yorklands Green Hub to help us with our operating costs.

Deadline: October 15th for registering with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or call 519 767-5353. For a map of the site, to arrange a tour or more details on this exciting project, please visit www.yorklandsgreenhub.ca
