Sustainable Living Week and market

04 November 2015

It's Sustainable Living Week and AlburyCity is joining the City of Wodonga and the Murray-Darling Regional Centre of Expertise to hold a Sustainable Living Week market on Saturday, 8am-noon, at Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga.

The market will feature fresh produce direct from our local farmers, cooking demonstrations showcasing local food, workshops including composting and cloth nappies, craft for kids and adults, advice on food growing and the latest in sustainable home solutions.

Come along to 'speed date' a sustainable designer, make your own native bee hotel or chat to a variety of local businesses and community groups about all things sustainable.

Sustainable Living Week is from 7-14 November and is about encouraging people to make small and simple changes to the way they live, so they have a positive impact on the environment, their lifestyle, their community and even their finances.

AlburyCity Mayor Henk van de Ven said: "I urge all Border residents to take advantage of this great opportunity to learn how to make little changes that can make a big difference to the environment and also to your household budget."

Activities during Sustainable Living Week will include a Caring for Country indigenous walk and talk, enviro story time at libraries, pedal-powered cinemas and a community conversation hosted by Renewable Albury Wodonga.

Bring your broken household items such as furniture, clothing, battery-operated appliances and bikes to the Repair Cafe and learn how to fix them with the help of experienced, volunteer repairers.

Or you can join the RAW Energy open community conversation on 12 November at The Cube in Wodonga. Book a free ticket online.
