Sustainable Living Workshop Series

The Sustainable Living Workshop Series was developed to assist residents to live and work more sustainably as part of Council's plan to foster the development of environmentally responsible and liveable communities across Mount Alexander Shire.

The free two-hour workshops run on the fourth Saturday of each month, and will commence again in March 2017.

Find out how to make cheap and environmentally friendly cleaning products, look after chooks in your backyard, and create useful things out of old t-shirts. If you are looking to get outdoors, sign up for a waterway ramble or come along to a bird watching workshop.

Bookings are required for these free workshops. Spaces are limited in some workshops.

A copy of the 2017 brochure is available to download here.

For more information or to register your interest contact Dallas Giles, Healthy Environments Administration Officer on (03) 5471 1768 or d.giles@mountalexander.vic.gov.au.
