About our community

The Perth County Sustainability Hub  is a member of the Suzuki Foundation’s Future Ground Network, which provides us with training, technical assistance, and connection with environmental groups across Canada. We are very grateful for the support provided by this wonderful network.

We are a huge county. The largest population centres within Perth County are Stratford and St. Marys, Mitchell, Palmerston, Milverton and Listowel. These small cities are situated in over two thousand square kilometres of some of the richest farmland in Canada. Our distances pose problems; travel can be a big obstacle, and many people have poor broadband. News and information systems leave a lot to be desired. Collaboration between all our smaller communities is not impossible, however; with expertise and a little elbow grease, we can find ways to work together. 

If you are a sustainability group in our county, please think of joining us. We can include your events on our web page, and we are developing an extensive social media network.  If you have information on environmental or sustainability groups in your area, please reach out to us to let us know about them.

If you’e an individual, and would like to participate, you can sign up for our newsletter, join our online meetings, and we could sure use some help with our retrofit project. Learn more on the About Us page.
