12th show - Sustainable Fawkner

aired Wednesday 9 June at midday.

On this day we were joined by two top blokes, Brian Bainbridge and Judd Bovell, who have started a local Environment Group called Sustainable Fawkner. Sustainable Fawkner was established in close connection with the principles of the Transition Towns movement, to provide a local response to the challenges of Climate Change and Peak Oil. The project is being developed in close collaboration with the Fawkner Community House.

We had a good chat with Brian and Judd and they were able to explain some of their fantastic plans for the future. A lot of their work will revolve around sustainable food production and they already have been organising some Food Produce Swaps (see dates below). The picture below was taken at their last food swap on the 12th of June.

The following food swaps will take place from 10am to 12 noon in front of the Fawkner Leisure Centre on the following dates:

- 10th July 2010
- 14th August 2010
- 11th September 2010
- 9th October 2010
- 13th November 2010.
