FREE screening of ‘Where Do Eagles Dare?’ THIS SATURDAY night!
Following on from his very popular presentation to our group on July 22, Simon Cherriman has arranged this FREE screening of his film ‘Where Do Eagles Dare?’ Expect an evening of entertaining eagle science.
Simon says: “Free entry – just turn up. Bring friends! Donations before or after the film are welcomed! Signed DVDs available on the night ($35 each), plus exclusive question time about how the film was made, and much more!”
Thanks to everyone who came and participated so generously and enthusiastically at our very first MiT/HSG quiz night. What a great bunch of people we have in the hills!! 🙂 The more we do together, the more we work towards a more sustainable and resilient community. Great to be part of this amazing time in this incredible place we call The Hills!!
Our very first Beeswax Food Wrap Workshop was organised quite spontaneously, to coincide with the School Holidays. Don’t worry if you missed out, we will be having another quite soon. Let us know if you’re interested at firstname.lastname@example.org
A Quiz Night with a meaningful difference! Sustainability-oriented questions and prizes AND an opportunity to support the two local sustainability groups: MiT and Hills Sustainability Group. Bookings are essential please.
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!)
FEEL LIKE HELPING US OUT? Continuing on from our waste reduction, living lighter on the Earth theme, we’re setting up the sewing machine again at the Mundaring Sunday Markets. With all the pre-cut material from our May event to invite market goers to make/take a re-usable produce bag. We’ll have other stuff about reducing packaging and info on the Plastic Free July Challenge available too.
Feel like you could spare an hour or so to do a stint and help? You don’t need to be an expert, we all help each other along!! Get back to us soon, we’re compiling the roster. Email: email@example.com

A film which is optimistic but clear-sighted. It makes clear that these current and impending crises are, in fact, positive challenges! Voices of Transition is an inspiring, award-winning movie about how to achieve a better (food) system. The film showcases community-led action in Cuba, innovative farming methods in France and the powerful Transition movement in the UK.
The focus of our May event was: reducing waste and sharing our ideas in community (with soup and sewing thrown in for good measure). HUGE Thankyou to all the people who lent a hand, brought sewing machines and generally helped make the night hum along. That’s Transition in action.
It was great to meet the inspiring team from The Wasteless Pantry on Tuesday 19. What Amanda and Jeannie shared with us is definitely the type of local enterprise we want to support at MiT. Especially when they are going the extra distance and considering all sustainability aspects of their products. Reduced/no packaging, food miles (?), ethically produced etc, etc. You can read all about it – and get heaps of tips – on their fabulous website: http://www.wastelesspantry.com.au/ OPENING June 1st
