Looking for Mt. Lorne residents interested in taking the lead and revitalizing these initiatives:

Compost Club

LMCA compost club project is . . .

  • Turning our waste into organic compost for our gardens.
  • Open to anyone who is interested.
  • A test project that we monitor for temperature, quality and timing. We will test the end product for nutrient levels and microbial life.
  • Constructed mostly from re-used materials, volunteer labour.
  • A club with a $20 membership and some donated time to help ensure clean compost.

Emergency Committee

The Community Emergency Committee(CEC) works with the Yukon Government Emergency Measures Organization to achieve two things:

  • to plan ahead in the event of a community emergency and have a plan in place for different kinds of events (wildfire, long power outage, hazardous materials, earthquake, etc.), and
  • to be adequately trained to be able to support and assist responding agencies who come to the scene and to mobilize our own resources.

Mt. Lorne is a great community to live in, but there are some distinct challenges to contend with should something go wrong. For instance, most people have only one access road from their place to the highway. We are spread out, in mostly thick forest, and often at the ends of long roads that are not always vehicle-friendly. These kinds of issues have led us to begin to work together and with the Yukon Government Emergency Measures Organization to think ahead and prepare what we can.
