Transition invites waste vision input

Therese ColmanAugusta Margaret River Times

Transition Margaret River is calling on residents to get more involved with energy conservation and sustainability projects this year.

The group is planning a 2018 activity meeting and its open invitation extends to people wanting to make a difference in the community.

Following on from the group’s 2017 waste theme, the focus for 2018 is renewable energy and conservation.

Augusta-Margaret River Clean Community Energy group chairwoman and Transition member Lyn Serventy said the group’s main focus was to work with the community to decrease both consumption and waste.

“Our two biggest projects for the year are a wind and solar farm planned for Scott River and a bio-digester for the community,” she said.

“We are also planning ‘train the trainers’ sessions, where a professional will run workshops on decreasing consumption in the household and saving money on bills. We will also work closely with schools to teach children how to measure consumption before and after waste-saving methods.”

Transition member Britta Sorensen said Saturday morning tea and swap shares would continue at the Organic Gardens this year, and she hoped to see a wider community join in the activities.

Transition’s 2018 activity meeting will be held at the Organic Gardens on January 24 from 5pm-7pm.
