WooHoo … our Energy Forum, on this afternoon at the Hub, Craig Street in Mundaring. Come and join us! Hey, aren’t we all after that Cleaner – Fairer – Future ? Here’s the program all Hosted by another local legend Peter Holland.
LOVE REAL FOOD? HATE WASTE? LOVE TO SHARE? Well so do we!!!
On Wed 21 Oct – along with the Fair FOOD documentary – we’re testing out our first GARDEN & PRODUCE SHARE before launching a Sunday morn event. Bring along your surplus: plants, seeds, produce, garden mags, egg cartons, jars etc. All free to share (movie as usual by donation to support venue costs ) Discussion also after doco.
If you weren’t able to make it to our featured movie on Wed, Sept 23, don’t worry: you can rent it online https://vimeo.com/ondemand/futureofenergy
It’s a very vibrant, positive doco about renewable energy. The community-driven projects – especially one involving students, retraining long term unemployed people and home owners – were really interesting. There are also whole cities going 100% renewable (sometimes rebuilding after natural disasters) and showing the rest of the world it’s totally possible!
The Future of Energy is a powerful documentary that captures the movement across the United States to transition to renewable energy and what everyday people are doing to help foster that shift. It’s a positive film about the renewable energy revolution, and a love story about the countless individuals and communities that are re-imagining their relationships with the planet and with each other.
Bill McKibben, Jamie Henn, Danny Kennedy, Jeremy Rifkin, Joanna Macy, Pandora Thomas, CA Governor Jerry Brown, Mark Jacobson, Mayors Bob Dixon and R. Rex Parris who have transitioned their cities to 100% renewable energy, and more.
These large aviaries were being donated to Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Sanctuary by the McFarlane Family. MiT was asked to help out and David, Ken & Jarrah stepped up to assist with the dismantling. With the wet & wild weather that unfolded, it was a pretty soggy experience but after a few hours it was DONE. Flat packed!! Just hope the cockies appreciate their new homes. Well done boys!

We’ll get to see areas not open to the general public to observe waste diversion programs, the Landfill Gas & Power Station site, the tip face and greenwaste recovery.

Our Quiz Night was a stand-out success!

This is a bit of a step-by-step photo record of our mates down at Glen Forrest Community Garden building the pizza oven under the skilled (and generous) guidance of Mike Moore. He came up with some pretty innovative techniques. (repurposed box from his new boy’s toy!)
