We have happy news to announce from our Earth Carers office; both Gabrielle and Nabilla are both going to have babies! Nabilla is expecting her first baby in the end of September while Gabrielle will be adding to her little family in early September. We wish them and their families all the very best for their journey ahead. Rebecca and Amy will miss them terribly in the office but we will pop in on them for regular visits and cups of tea!
Rest assured, Earth Carers will continue on our good work in the community. Speaking of which, we have a couple of snippets to share:
MRC's Advanced Earth Carers Course
Join Peg and Anne for the Advanced EC course
with Mindarie Regional Council. The course is an extension of knowledge and activities beyond what's covered in the Earth Carers course. Participants will hear and see how waste is dealt with on a commercial scale and then - the most interesting part - develop a project about some issue ‘addressing the waste stream’. This is not a scary thing and the projects are as big or small as your imagination and time. Contact Peg Davies at email@example.com
or mobile 0422 941 492 for more info.
: Wednesday 22 July, 6pm
