Sustainability is everyone's business.

We like to get Out and About to get everyone involved in making ours a resilient, sustainable community. You can participate in our bi-annual Sustainably- made art competition, that's SMART;  join us at Community Events; or you can invite us to your place: group, organisation, workplace or event. We can offer a guest speaker, waste audit, Q & A session or workshop tailored to your needs. You'll see a Snapshot of our activities on our gallery of stories and pictures.
