Time for our first get together for 2018 and a pleasant hour swapping & sharing on a Sunday morning. Bring along your favourite zucchini overload strategy 🙂
Been a great year & we’ve loved Food Sharing with you all. Join us for our last one for 2017. There’s sure to be some celebratory nibbles
Bring along your excess garden stuff & produce to share and hang out with other folks who like to grow edibles. John Yaxley – who did the tool sharpening workshop at the Festival of Forgotten Skills – has generously offered to do a Bokashi Composting Demo. AND we have a donated Bokashi Bucket for free raffle. Doing our bit for National Recycling Week.
This will be our last sewing bee for 2017. We have HEAPS of donated material and would love your help to create heaps of bags to put out there into the community. To say Thank You to all our wonderful volunteers, we’ll turn on the snacks this time. Come for a short time or stay the whole time. We’d love to see you.
Woohoo! Our GO2CUPS launch has made the Hills Gazette. Click on the photo to read Sarah Brookes’ great article.
Free courses coming up very soon for National Recycling Week. Click on each event to see links to registration pages & more info. But get in quick to book. The super popular Earth Carer’s Course being run right here in Mundaring (after work & with free food!).
It’s festival time in our part of the Hills. Last weekend was Gidgie Show on Saturday and the Whim Festival on Sunday. Darlington Arts Festival next weekend. Shocking weather on Sat. didn’t deter a huge crowd from soaking up all the atmosphere of one of the last semi-urban ag. shows. Still has the chooks & livestock & homestead-y feel. Lots of familiar names with prize tags in the produce areas AND the homebrews (our cidermakers joined in the spirit of the show & entered). Sunday we were at the wonderful, wee Whim to spread the Transition message and be part of the cruise-y, warm atmosphere. Lots of visitors to say Hi! and check out our free organic seedling giveaways & check out the Boomerang Bags.
Woohooooo!! Our little DIVESTMENT success – nearly 2yrs liaising to get the wording changed in the Shire’s Investment policy with the help of the awesome team at 350.org But totally worth it. The photographer didn’t want us to include the signs, but we insisted. After all, lots of people don’t understand what “divestment” means. So we spelled it out. And the really good news: we have an amazing non-fossil fuel- funding bank right here in Mundaring. Mundaring Community Bank Branch has a board of VOLUNTEER Directors, has an ACTUAL OFFICE in town, provides local employment and gives a very significant percentage of its profits back to the community. How many other banks can claim that? Think about it … putting YOUR MONEY where it ALIGNS with YOUR VALUES.
