“Our “rot and roll” Compost Garden Parties are a way to recognize the value of composting, edible gardening and the sharing of the harvest with those in need,” said John Deagle, Manager, Foothills Regional Landfill who, along with the staff at the Compost Council of Canada, helped spearhead these happenings. “We look forward to welcoming everyone at these concerts and having a great time together.”

It will be the first time that Jane’s Party will perform in Western Canada.
The four-member band is gaining an ever-growing reputation in Ontario and Atlantic Canada as the “folk-pop darlings”. They will be playing hits from their album, The Garage Sessions, known for catchy hooks, bouncy beats and sweet vocal harmonies.
