North Grenville’s 2015 Dandelion Festival raised sponsorship by TransCanada. Some musicians booked to play prepared to withdraw due to ethical concerns. Sustainable North Grenville used this video to crowd-fund $5,000 to replace the TransCanada donation in just three days.
“Mind Your Own Business” MYOB is a series designed to help local business people market and grow their business. Created by Alicia Wanless (CrowderHouse) and produced by John Barclay (Triune) in association with TVCogeco, MYOB features a wide variety of local business owners who provide tips and ideas on a range of business issues, including using social media, developing business plans, providing excellent customer service and conducting market research; just to name four.
Partial funding for production was raised through the Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation’s Local Initiatives Program and an in-kind contribution from TVCogeco. Sponsorship opportunities are available for the remaining episodes of the series.

The Dandelion Festival worked best when it was located on the streets of Old Town Kemptville and this year it’s back – by popular demand. In 2014, donations of almost $2,000 made through the IndieGoGo crowdfunding site, enabled us to cover some of the costs of the security, barricades and signage that the Municipality and County required in order to permit the road closures you wanted.
The Bishop’s Mills Community Centre held a well-attended fundraising musical evening last March. Many local musicians contributed to the event. The Maplewood Ceilidh Band chose to perform during Earth Hour (no lights or amplification) and we (Peet Dukes, Phil Morotti and myself) rose to the challenge of trying to capture their set on video (battery power only). This is the result.
