Transition in the Pub Social Meetup

Recently TD’s social nights had fantastic presenters on waste, shopping, and coops, so there has been less time to simply chat with each other. This month will not focus on a topic, instead will be a chance for anyone to come along and have a yarn in a less formal way.
Bring a friend and enjoy some chats, food or drinks on the 30th April at the Thornbury local!

TD works towards transitioning Darebin away from current fossil fuel powered perpetual growth. So, one aspect of the night will be a very informal ‘Vox pop’ around some of the more important, humorous, and absurd questions facing people in these present times!

When: Tuesday April 30, 7 pm to 9:30 pm

Where: The Thornbury Local – 635 High Street, Thornbury

Just off the 86 tram line or a short walk from Thornbury station. Unfortunately this venue is not wheel chair accessible.

This event is taking place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nations, we would like to acknowledge elders past present and emerging and note that sovereignty has never been seeded.

Fix-It Monthly Session – May

It’s Back! Our Newlands fix – it mend it Monthly session. Come Join Us.

This is an informal session, where people can bring their own items that need mending (and whatever supplies they need for it) and mend them themselves in good company.

How great will it be to be able to use those things in the back of the cupboard!

When: Thursday May 2, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Where: Preston – contact 0468 963 868.

We will start as a lounge room event & then see if it moves to a different venue.

Note we LOVE Repair Cafes where volunteers fix things for you. This is different – this is where we make the time to fix/mend our own things – to make it a priority 🙂

Food Swaps – Northcote

The next Northcote food swap will be on Saturday May 11, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at 251 High St Northcote in the side garden of the church.

Food Swaps are an occasion to meet your community, talk about gardens and sustainability and swap excess produce from your garden, or something you made in your kitchen. You bring some and get to take some away as with all good swaps.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
  • cordials
  • sour dough starter

The list goes on…

Our Apple Tree – Working Bee

Come one, come all, to this month’s Apple Tree Working Bee.  Come and support a green space initiative, and make the area better for all.

Where: Garden next to 123 Herbert Street, Northcote

When: Sunday May 12, 10 am onwards

Repair Cafe #7

Our 7th Darebin Repair Cafe is coming up on Sunday 26th May from 10am to 1pm.  It’ll be at The Bridge, Preston.  More details to come – stay tuned!
