The Forum built on the work that the OSGN had done over the preceding months, which included a survey on smart growth issues and a webinar on "Smart Growth in Ontario and Why it Matters".

The Graham Family Eco Park

Just outside the city limits of London Ontario is the location of the Graham Family Eco Park. Fifteen years ago Bill Graham, founder of South Winds Development and TRY Recycling, started the project to restore the park from 26 acres of aggregate site to what it is today. The former gravel pit has become a beautiful natural site that is covered with diverse plant and animal life on land and in its featured pond.

Africans in Partnership against HIV/AIDS

Written by Jennifer Madueke, a student in the Community Worker Program at George Brown College, while on placement at OHCC.

As a student on placement at Africans in Partnership against AIDS/HIV, I had the opportunity to observe and participate in a program to increase the awareness of sexually transmitted infections among young adults and how it can be reduced. I was also involved in efforts to reduce the level of teenage pregnancy in violent and dangerous neighbourhoods.
