Dear Environmentality Listeners,
Do you want to learn more about indigenous plants? How to compost and run a successful worm farm? Energy efficiency in the home? The Hume City Council are running a fantastic range of environmental workshops over autumn. Jaime and Smokey spoke with guest Simon Finnigan, the Sustainability Education Officer from the Hume City Council to find out more.
The workshops are part of the Live Green program of the Hume City Council. And wonderful for the public, they are free. Ranging from sustainable gardening, cycling, conservation planting, ‘green film’ nights, wildlife photography and many others! The workshops are usually held on a Wednesday or a Saturday (with some exceptions).
There was a lot of chatter in the show about the thought provoking monthly 'green films' being aired and the delicious culinary related workshops.
In particular, Smokey is excited about the home brew workshop for non-alcoholic ginger beer. Real, quality ginger beer is a personal favourite! Jaime is keen to attend the cheese making workshop, and wonders, is it a process that can be integrated into his weekly domestic schedule alongside bread making?
The workshops are, let us mention again, free! You can find out more about the program and how to register for the Hume City Council Environment Workshops here:
Staff from the Hume City Council are happy to answer any questions you may have about the workshops, call 9205 2200.
Listen to the podcast if you missed the show. Otherwise, we look forward to you joining us next week!
