In Brisbane our crew are active in helping care and conserve for urban bushland. One of our team is active in a Catchment Group and volunteers for two sites as a bushcare group leader: one in Wynnum and one in Manly/Lota.
Do we need new coal mines? Do we need to destroy precious Australian resources like the Great Artesian Basin and the Great Barrier Reef? We don't think so! We're getting up and getting active to join the fight to move to a fossil free future. First step: No New Coal Mines.
Sick of plastic? We were too. It's not hard to go plastic bag free really, and often consumers and retailers just need a little helping hand to start their journey down the plastic free path. Our crew really enjoyed this project and hope to continue the fight in Brisbane and Darwin.
We fundraised just over $7100 and partnered with local organisation, the Himalayan Light Foundation, to deliver a solar array to a remote school in Jyamire, in the Okhaldhunga District, eastern Nepal. A technician and facilitator from the HLF accompanied us to the village and we were able to assist in the installation of the solar system at the school.
The Karratha Community Garden was established through a small grant and the hard work of a group of like-minded people, who wanted a space for the community to grow. Once a suitable plot had been identified, a stand-alone incorporated association, The Karratha Community Garden Inc, was formed and land leased from council.
After a couple of years in town the Karratha Enviro Group began taking groups of people out to Millstream National Park to help clear the streams of invasive weeds. Carpooling from Karratha with teams of 10-30 people we had some fun and exhausting days out.
