Do you love our feathered friends but find that the only visitors to your garden are magpies and mynas?  Join Richard Rowe from Sustainable Gardening Australia to hear about some achievable steps you can take to provide habitat for small birds, discourage the bully birds and boost bird biodiversity.
 
Attendees will receive an indigenous plant to begin their garden enrichment.

 


Smarter Living Sessions

Natalie Isaacs is the founder and CEO of 1 Million Women, a global movement of women and girls who take practical action to fight climate change by changing the way they live. A former cosmetics manufacturer, Natalie realised that individual action is key to a powerful path to solving the climate crisis. She decided to leave behind the over-packaged world of skin and beauty care, to create an organisation that inspires and empowers women to act. Recently, Natalie published ‘Every Woman's Guide to Saving the Planet’.


She will present on her inspiring story combined with a practical tool kit for reducing your carbon footprint and mobilising your community around the biggest issue of our time - climate change.

Bring your family along to a fun filled night for all ages to learn about 'all things' recycling. You will get the chance to see a real recycle truck!


Be entertained by an engaging performance from the wonderful ‘Material Girls’ who will take you on a journey explaining how to maximise recycling through song and dance. There will be lots of fun activities on the night some of which include recycling relays, making puppets from recycled material and learning how to make recycled paper.


There will be prizes and giveaways on the night.
