Don’t Forget the Clothes Swap!!!

Have you cleaned out your wardrobe lately? The Clothes Swap next Saturday is a good reason to clean out all those Summer clothes you no longer need (or can’t fit into!) For every item you bring, select another one free. Nothing to swap?…..for $1 take three items. What a bargain.

Proof of a productive morning’s work.


Volunteers needed!

Do you have an hour or two to spare, to help us out at EcoFest?

Tasks range from handing out programs to helping with setup/packup.

A roster is being filled so please email if you are able to help out.


EcoFest Program – only 1 week to go!

Coming to  but can’t stay all day?

Here are the map and program for the day, to help you decide which time suits you best, so you don’t miss the talks or activities you are most interested in.

…and remember to allow at least an extra half hour for browsing all those stalls – that’s if you are good at moving fast!


More about EcoFest

Autumn is the perfect time for planting so while at the EcoFest why not visit some of our Stalls which are aimed at our gardens. Are you thinking of adding more indigenous plants to your own surrounds? Do you want to attract more bees and birds to your garden? Would you like to cut down on your water bills? Shaks from Forth Valley Bush Nursery will be at the Fest with a wonderful selection of plants – Tasmanian and those indigenous to the north-west for you to choose from.  Dee from Hobbie Herb will be there at her Stall with a huge selection of herbs – some familiar and some not so familiar. You may be surprised. Eileen and Robert Millet will advise on all things gardening and I believe they may have one or two seedlings available for the early bird. Visit the NWEC Stall and you’ll find packets of seeds which you can obtain for a simple donation. Have you heard of wild foods? Prefer eating to getting your hands in the dirt. Then pay a visit to Rees from Murnong Wild Food Garden and tantalise your taste buds with her many food samples.

Both Robert and Rees will be presenters at the Eco Exchange. For their times, check the timetable in your Program on the day.
