Heathmont Bushcare at Local Sustainability Fair

Last Sunday 9th Feb, Heathmont Bushcare had a presence at the Local Sustainability Fair  which was sponsored by Transition Towns Maroondah. The fair attracted a sizeable number of people keen to learn more about how we can all lead more sustainable lives, and about what local people and businesses are doing to lessen their impact on the planet. Heathmont Bushcare’s stall was one of many and drew a constant stream of people interested to discover more about the work that we do in making Heathmont an even better place to live. Many were also keen to see how many of the insects, commonly found in the Heathmont area, that they could identify and what they could do to help establish insect friendly environments. You can also test yourself – see below! Many thanks to Gwyn for organising Heathmont Bushcare’s presence at this fair and for everyone who assisted on the day.
