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.

Find out how to 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 the waterway ramble.

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, Business Support Officer on (03) 5471 1768 or d.giles@mountalexander.vic.gov.au.
