Ride The Talk

John Knox is riding through Daylesford this weekend as one stop of many on his nationwide bicycle speaking tour. He has decided that, rather than simply complain about the lack of action on Climate Change, he needs to do something positive about it.

John Knox will be speaking at 2pm, this Sunday 1st August at the Daylesford Town Hall. He will be speaking about Energy Efficiency (and what it can save you) and sharing information about how you can save money (and help save humanity) by making simple changes at home.

You can learn how to stretch your dollar in the following areas:
- Heating/Cooling
- Lighting
- Appliances
- Cooking
- Insulation
- Phantom loads
- Solar power & hot water
- Transport

Come along to an entertaining, informative, engaging and interactive presentation in YOUR community on ways you (and your friends & family) can save energy and avoid wasting your hard earned money while helping to save humanity.

Sponsored by the Hepburn Shire Council, HRN and SHARE.

Our Seeds: Seeds Blong Yumi

The SeedSavers film, Our Seeds: Seeds Blong Yumi will be screened at the Hepburn Retreat Center (our beloved Conti House) on Thursday 29th July after another scrumptious organic local food banquet.

You must book for the dinner ($15) and be there at 6.30pm (remember, if you can't make it let us know because we have to pay for every booking, if you tell us too late you will be asked to pay anyway)...

You don't need to book for the film at 8pm... Bring the kids, they'll really like it!

It has been far too long since we had our last film but for those who did get to see "Food Inc" in conjunction with Joel Salatin's talks at the Lakehouse, would have found it a rather shocking wake up call to have a re-think about where we get our food.

It also presented some great alternatives to the industrialised food system that we are fully immersed in if we buy from the supermarkets.

We will be showing that film in the near future for those of you who did not get to see it but in the meantime, join us on Thursday to see Homegrown.
