Wyndham City’s Green Living Series is back, with more than 35 free events to help you live a greener and cleaner life. From cheese making classes to koala tours, there will be something for everyone during the two-month series.
Wyndham City’s Environment and Sustainability portfolio holder, Cr Heather Marcus, said the free community events had proven extremely popular with residents.
“This is the fifth year we’ve held the Green Living Series in Wyndham. Back in 2014 we ran it as a trial with 10 events, which were attended by 179 people. Last year there were 34 events attended by almost 1800 people,” Cr Marcus said.
“This is a testament to the community’s interest and enthusiasm in reducing their environmental footprint. I’m glad we’re able to give people the opportunity to attend these events,” she added.
Highlights for this year include a tour of Mount Rothwell, the largest predator free ecosystem in Victoria, workshops on keeping chooks, and pop-up recycling days.
“I’m so excited to see the return of this popular series. The Green Living Series aims to increase local interest and knowledge in living sustainably by raising awareness and providing tools and ideas for change,” Cr Marcus said.
“If you’ve ever wanted to make a green change in your household but don’t know where to start, make sure you come along to the Green Living Series,” she added.
The Green Living Series will be held during February and March. For more information and a full list of events, visit www.wyndham.vic.gov.au/greenlivingseries.
