Locals showcase their work toward a sustainable future
Following on the highly successful and enjoyable sustainability tour in 2011, Bowen in Transition has organized another tour for 2012, with a different itinerary.
The sustainability tour is a chance to visit your Bowen neighbours and see what they are doing towards developing a more sustainable lifestyle. Come and join the tour for a chance to both educated and inspired and to share ideas with your fellow islanders.
On the tour this year there will be Tilapia fish farming, a fabulous rambling orchard and vegetable garden, a look at composting alternatives, green transport options, chicken farming, a postage stamp garden with a greenhouse and rainwater collection, a demo of the new energy saving electricity monitors that you can borrow from our local library and more.
Transport around the island will be by bus. The tour costs $10 and will be held on Saturday, July 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To book your place, contact Shasta at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604 947 2283.
