The Township of Augusta held the 2020 Fall Harvest Event at V6 Agronomy in North Augusta on Thursday. Oct. 22 is World Energy Day.

Several local projects and businesses involving agriculture, sustainability, the environment and economic development were highlighted at the gathering attended by about 30 people.

“This is why we’re all here today,” said township planner and event MC Myron Belej, who congratulated the entrepreneurs and organizations in the audience for all of the work they have been doing on initiatives that are benefiting the rural community.

Some of those projects are partnerships involving the municipality and other agencies such as the Canadian Wildlife Federation and South Nation Conservation that involve habitat restoration. The township is working with local beekeepers to promote pollination.
