Are you concerned about the rising cost of living, extreme weather events (like heatwaves, or bushfires) or climate change? 

Then, join us to find out how we can tackle all these at the same time - save on our energy and food bills, learn permaculture techniques, and having more control over our food production. This free community event will feature leading advocates, along with nibbles and a hands on workshop.

  • Jenny Brown - Climate Lead at Queensland Conservation Council with expertise in climate and environmental policy. Jenny has diverse experience, most recently she worked for the World Bank where she supported efforts to decarbonise the international transport sector, including by developing a Pacific wide decarbonisation plan.
