After August 2016 dust bunnies will be a thing of the past. Or if not completely the past, at least they won’t show up on a daily basis! Our future holds Prairie Spruce Commons with in-floor hydronic heating and cooling!
We currently live in a house with forced air heating. We have our furnace and duct works cleaned annually, and we have one of those lifetime carbon air filters on the furnace. I clean the filter, as directed, on a regular basis, and still THEY come. Dust bunnies! I grew up in a home with hot water radiant heating. We had dust – after all there were five kids, and we tore around a lot – but we did not have daily dust bunnies.
I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff. – Jon Katz
Are you interested in cohousing but not at a point in your life where you are ready to live at Prairie Spruce?
Cohousing groups create social and cultural opportunities that individuals themselves may not have. As we’ve done regularly over the last year, Prairie Spruce can host speakers, musicians, artists and special events. We can also engage in initiatives and lobbying for better, more sustainable communities. While our common community voice and presence is stronger than that of any one individual, our voice would certainly benefit from your additional participation and involvement. Having more “Friends” makes our voice stronger. Plus, social events are more fun with more people!
8 Benefits of Joining
We expect many of our “Friends of Prairie Spruce” may not be prospective owners at Prairie Spruce but that shouldn’t prevent you from being part of the broader Prairie Spruce community and experience. For now, being a Friend would give you access to participate in:
Workshops on group facilitation, active listening, & conflict resolution
Organized group classes (yoga, beer making, cooking, etc,)
Concerts, art shows and film screenings
Lobbying for better community
Special community potlucks
Special early access “Friends Only” tours of our new homes
Random acts of generosity, kindness and support (aka, friendship).
Plus, you’d get to meet and become friends with some of the best people I know in Regina!
Consider this your invitation to join our Friends of Prairie Spruce group. We’d love it if we could welcome you in person by joining as at our free screening of the Happy Moviethis Sunday at the Cathedral Community Centre. If Sunday doesn’t work for you, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Friends” and include your name, email address and phone number. We will create a special email list of our Friends and should you ever decide you want to be removed, you can easily unsubscribe. There will be no fee for becoming a Friend of Prairie Spruce (although there may be cost recovery fees for specific events).
In Ontario you can sell excess energy generated by your solar panels back to the grid. As of today (Aug. 2, 2014) Saskatchewan has a program like most provinces where you generate power that goes to the grid that you can use later. Basically just lowering your future electricity bills.
