“In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation… even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine.”

The Tucker House Seventh Generation Learning Series is a modular set of presentations and workshops on a variety of sustainability topics. It promotes integrated sustainable living practices in the greater Ottawa area through engaging and informative content.
