How Ordinary People can address Climate Change
With climate change a growing concern for gardeners and earth-lovers alike, Nell Azuri joins us to discuss a powerful, positive way to build the political will for a livable world. Nell is from Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a world-wide organisation seeking to empower ordinary people to address climate change in the most effective ways possible. For those who wish to do some research before the meeting, here is a link to the Citizens’ Climate Lobby website: http://www.ccl.org.au/
Massive Sand Mine proposed for the Sunshine Coast
Kerluran Kuskopf will address the meeting about her concerns:
ONE of Australia’s largest sand mines is being proposed for a massive parcel of rural cane land west of the Sunshine Motorway at Coolum.
The proposal is for part of a 500ha site designated as a Key Resource Area by the State Government in October, 2013.
Development giant Consolidated Properties has confirmed if successful it would seek the contract to supply sand for fill to the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion.
It said tree felling activities onsite now under way were part early works construction, ahead of plans to submit a sand mining application in the coming weeks.
There will also be other topics which will be discussed at the meeting – we are still working on these. As always, you will leave the meeting better informed than you were at the beginning!
Permaculture Noosa monthly meetings are usually held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Doors open at 5.30pm when meals will be available before the meeting. A market takes place where we share surplus home grown produce and plants by giving, exchanging or selling. Entry is a gold coin donation for non-members. The meeting begins at 6.30pm and the night is complete with a “bring a plate” shared supper at 8pm. All welcome.
