Ideas of what to bring:

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

The list goes on…

Transition Streets: Let’s talk, imagine, and connect over the better future possibilities in our neighbourhoods!

A workshop to explore the Transition Streets method of bringing neighbourhoods together.

The Transition movement (originally called Transition Towns) began in the UK over a decade ago. There are now hundreds of Transition groups around the globe, exploring local strategies for building low carbon, resilient communities able to respond to the challenges of climate change, resource depletion and environmental degradation.

Transition Streets encourages us to develop relationships within our immediate neighbourhood that will help us explore and respond to some of the significant environmental challenges before us. Whilst we face an uncertain future, we also have the opportunity to think about the type of community we want to live in and to start creating that vision now, with cooperation and creativity.

When? Saturday 23rd November, 2:00 – 4:30
Where? Newlands Neighbourhood House
Cost? Gold coin donation
Afternoon tea provided
Children welcome
Register to attend by e-mailing ecoze@mmnet.com.au

We look forward to seeing you there.

Part of the Community Climate Series, co-hosted by NUCA & NP4CA with the Newlands Neighbourhood House see more details on the series at https://www.facebook.com/communityclimateaction/

Darebin Repair Cafe – Date Saver

This is our 10th Darebin Repair Cafe and its taking place at The Bridge Preston

Book in via Eventbrite to have an item repaired. One booking per person so everyone gets a fair go. It might be possible to have more than one item fixed but you will have to queue again.

To see full range of tickets – go to eventbrite page.

Repairs only on: jewellery, items needing glueing, clothes repair, visible mending, and small electrical. Plus you can have your electrical equipment tested and tagged. NB this is not electrical repair but testing for safety.

Email us with a description of what needs fixing so we can check with our volunteer fixers if it is doable and whether parts need to be purchased beforehand.

We need help with organising/supporting the event and are always on the lookout for more fixers- please get in touch at transitiondarebin@gmail.com

Bring a keep cup and a few coins for refreshments.

There is street parking on High St. The venue is close to Bell St for bus access. Bike parking on High st. Enter the venue at the side.

Darebin Repair Cafe is part of the International Repair Cafe Foundation and is kindly supported by Alphington Country Women’s Association.

Fix-It Monthly Session – November

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 December 5, 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 🙂
