Natural Burial Discussion

This coming Wednesday the 31st, midday at the NWEC on Ironcliff Rd Penguin, all members are invited to a discussion on natural burial . Present will be Lyndal Thorne who understands the ins and outs of natural burial. She will be able to answer your questions.

Why is the NWEC hosting this discussion?

Natural burial sits very well with our efforts to support sustainable living and low impact on our environment. It is a rapidly growing movement across the world and the N.W Coast has many suitable sites.

This discussion is for us to learn about the natural burial movement and discuss how and if we could help progress this important movement.

We have a shared lunch every Wednesday at the centre so please bring a little lunch to share if you are coming.

Not a member? Not a problem. You can join up on the day, or go to the Membership section of this website. It’s also possible to pay half your membership fee with CENTs if you are a CENTs member.

Hope to see you there.


A Message from CAN West – Stop Adani

Please join us in the Day of Action against the proposed Adani coal mine in Queensland on Oct 7th on the beach at Burnie (outside Fish Frenzy) @10.30am, mobilised by More details will be placed on the CAN West Facebook page, or information via Anton or Caroline. Please spread this message through your networks. says:
We are deadly serious about stopping Adani’s proposed coal mine and moving Australia beyond fossil fuels. The Adani mine is a mistake for Australia. It’s a disaster for our climate, Indigenous rights, human health, water resources and the Great Barrier Reef. So far the #StopAdani Alliance has challenged the mine in court, campaigned for banks not to invest in the project and raised public awareness of the dangers the mine poses. Across Australia, communities have come together to say #StopAdani at a roadshow, movie screenings, targeted events and bank branches to ensure this project doesn’t go ahead.

We’re at a crucial point. We now need to increase the visibility of the widespread community opposition, pressuring the Federal Government not lend $1bn of taxpayer money to Adani via the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF). Adani’s coal project has been rejected by 24 banks internationally. The company needs NAIF money to go ahead. That’s why your participation is so vital on October 7 at the #StopAdani Big Day of Action.

On October 7 we are asking communities across Australia to come together to form giant human signs spelling out Stop Adani or take action in your community to send the #StopAdani message. Hope to see you there!
