Moon Rabbit Bulk Foods Launch Party

New year’s resolution: Be part of a bulk-buy collective!

Darebin’s low-waste cafe, Moon Rabbit, is launching a Bulk Foods Collective in February and is celebrating with a zero-waste party, free babyccinos and a day full of activities and live music.

Moon Rabbit’s Bulk Foods Collective will offer affordable, everyday pantry items in bulk – doing our bit to achieve a plastic-free Darebin and create a more sustainable community. Buy only what you need, BYO containers and avoid unnecessary packaging.

Discounts are available for collective members, concession-card holders and pensioners.

Where? Moon Rabbit café – Preston

The Bridge, 218 High St, Preston

When? Saturday, 22 February  from 09:30-14:00

Booking: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/moon-rabbit-bulk-foods-launch-party-tickets-86098311367?aff=efbeventtix

Transition Darebin will have a general stall, a boomerang bags stall with children’s activities, and the Thornbury food swap will be in residence at The Bridge for one day only (bring some food to swap from your garden) – so why not come and join us!

Boomerang Bags as part of the Sustainable Living Festival

Come and ‘sew sustainable’ with Boomerang Bags Thornbury/Northcote. They’ll bring sewing machines and fabric, so you can help sew a bag for a good cause and learn about what it takes to start your own chapter! Boomerang Bags is a grassroots, community driven movement tackling plastic pollution at its source. Re-useable ‘boomerang bags’ are made using recycled materials as a sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

When: Thursday 27 February, 6 pm to 7:30 pm
Where: Northcote Library – 32-38 Separation St, Northcote, VIC 3070

Book here.

Fix-It Monthly Session – March

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 March 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 🙂

Food Swaps


The next Northcote food swap will be on Saturday March 14, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at the Northcote Library Food Garden – 32-38 Separation Street, Northcote.


The next food swap will be on Saturday March 21, from 10 to 11 am. This week it will be held in front of the library on Edwardes St Reservoir, due to the Level Crossing Removal works.


The next Fairfield food swap will be on Saturday March 21, from 11 to 12 noon.  It can be found at the corner of Gillies and Duncan Streets, Fairfield. It will be in the side garden facing Duncan St.


The next food swap will be on Saturday March 28, from 11 to 12 pm.  This time we’ll be at The Bridge Preston – 218 High Street, Preston – as part of the launch of Moon Rabbit’s bulk buy co-op offering.

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…
