Projects completing – what next?
As Transition Town Hervey Bay draws near to the end of its 2 year project, its heartening to see so many new volunteers coming on board full of enthusiasm and great ideas. The Low Carbon Diet, the Energy Descent Action Plan and the TT Gardeners are all scheduled to wind up in June but there are calls already to go beyond that date, so it looks as though a new team will form.
Next Meeting Thursday 25 February at Images Training Restaurant, Wide Bay TAFE, Urraween Rd. A short film and social meeting.
