Your Presenter- Genevieve Neve
I’m a local mother of an 18 month old. We have been using cloth since birth and are moving towards early potty training. I’m an Actor with a background in Art and Fashion and a particular interest in environmental impact, hoping for a better future for our children, believing in a circular economy and a closed loop system. I have created my own pattern and instructions for cloth nappy making which come free with this course.

Your Host – Transition Darebin
We are a community group based in Darebin which aims to inspire a transition to more sustainable ways of living. This series of workshops supports local people by showcasing their skills within the community. The sessions offer opportunities to learn about sustainable living, be informed about climate/environmental issues and build stronger connections between local people, in order to create a healthy, sustainable and inclusive community.
