In our neighbouring municipality of Yarra…
I’m sure AYCC would be up for organising a Darebin event when the solar project group are ready…
AYCC Repowering Yarra!
The Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) are holding a Repower Australia event with proceeds going towards YCAN’s local solar project. If you haven’t heard of the Repower campaign, check it out – it’s taking off around the country. About the repower campaign.

Thanks to everyone who came to Transition Darebin’s first heart and soul workshop on the 6th of November. We had neighbours from Transition Banyule and Whitehorse with us and it was a lovely day to share with our fellow transitioners. There was yoga, there was meditation, and sharing of our thoughts, feelings and commitments about the world and our dreams for the Transition.
Heart & Soul Workshop
Sunday 6th November
Darebin Creek Environment Centre
End of Separation St, Alphington
What is it:
A workshop using Joanna Macey’s ‘Work that Reconnects’ as well as elements of meditation and yoga. Our aim is to refresh, renew and re-inspire Transition Darebin members and our fellow travellers.
In the midst of all the work we do for our community and our world, sometimes we forget to nurture ourselves.

What an inspiring afternoon learning all about Angora Rabbits and how you can make clothes from their fur. It is the softest stuff I have ever felt and when knitted into clothes is just divine. What amazed me about this afternoon was not only has Asphyxia created her own house out of mudbrick, created a garden that supplies oodles of fruit and vege but also has an animal that supplies her with wool to create her own clothes. The rewards of this type of lifestyle are huge. Asphyxia mentioned wanting to see if she could live like a “medieval woman”- what a great aspiration in this fast paced, consumer orientated society.
Asphyxia will show us how to look after Angora rabbits and turn their fur into clothes we can wear. You can even have a go at spinning some yarn!
When: 2pm Sunday 17 April
Where: 7 Bower Street Northcote (Asphyxia’s house: down the back behind number 5).
Close to Dennis railway station and 251 and 250 buses.
This workshop is free (donation optional) but bookings are essential as places are limited –
contact Sally: email@example.com / 0415 099 829 by Thursday 14th of April – first in best dressed!
The clothing and materials working group are hosting regular casual get-togethers where people can bring along a crafty project, maybe get some tips and advice, or maybe help someone else with something they are making.
Our first crafting session will be at 1/15 Ballantyne Street, Thornbury from 2pm on Sunday the 10th of April. We will look at making this a regular event if it proves popular! Other venue suggestions are welcome.
