CARP – Opponents to a proposed Carp Road Corridor cement batching plant are hosting a month-long yoga series to help raise funds for the fight.
The Save Huntley Creek initiative is holding a four-week mini-series of gentle yoga classes starting Sunday, March 15 titled the Save Huntley Creek Yoga Fundraiser.
Classes will start at 9:30 a.m. at The Village Sanctuary, (4017 Carp Rd.) on Sundays.
Organizers are asking for a minimum $35 donation to “Save Huntley Creek.”
“As a fundraising initiative, we are offering a one-hour gentle yoga class each Sunday for four weeks, starting March 15,” organizers released in a statement. “Unwind from the weekend or set up for the week ahead in this all-levels, gentle yoga class. We will focus on mindful movement, stretching and breath work for a calm to carry with you.”
This series will be available for all fitness levels.

The Save Huntley Creek initiative is a grassroots effort that is working to stop a concrete batching plant from being built next to Huntley Creek in Carp. The opponents’ key concerns regarding the placement of a concrete plant next to Huntley Creek include: groundwater contamination; air pollution; the destruction of wildlife habitat in and around the creek; increased truck traffic on Carp Road; significant noise pollution by the operations of the plant and an overall degradation of quality of life to all of the residents in this ecologically and historically important area.
