Don’t compost all of those vegies and herbs going to seed in your gardens right now …. we need your seeds! We’re collecting now to generate the borrowing stock for the new seed bank which will appear soon at the Albert Facey Library in Mundaring. How exciting is that!
Obviously, we need some information about the seeds too. What type and variety of plant, as well as where and when it was grown. You can record all that on the paper bags (in two sizes) the Library has kindly made available at the front desk. You can use those (or ones from home), with one type of seed per bag. We prefer paper over plastic because it’s important that the seeds don’t sweat or get moist. Don’t forget to fill out as much info about the seeds as you can. Here’s a link to the donation form if you’d like to print them off at home, just click on the picture below.
Help us spread the word far and wide about this showcase of sustainability & environmentally friendly stuff you can access up here in the Hills. Then come and join the fun on the day. It will be AWESOME!
MiT are just one of the groups deeply involved in organising this Festival. It’s a local, minimal waste event based on a variety of environmental themes. Plenty of food vans with healthy food using GO2CUPS re-usable crockery & real cutlery (our own little War on Waste solution).
There will be talks, stalls, music, food & fun for everyone. Heaps of totally FREE activities for kids as well.
CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE A SUSTAINABLE, REGENERATIVE BUSINESS OR GROUP AND WOULD LIKE A STALL. NON-FOOD STALLS ARE FREE!!!!

MOTION BEING PUT TO SHIRE COUNCIL MEETING TUES 13, 6.30P
If you feel, like we do, that more needs to be done at a local level to increase the uptake of renewables … then you might be interested in this. A group of enthusiasts from MiT have come up with this proposal to form a working group of community members, Councillors and Shire staff to look at a model that has worked successfully in Victoria. As well as alternative sources of funding. Let us know if you’d like to support this initiative.
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.
