Interview And Photos

11 January 2009 2 Comments

We did an interview and some photos with Paul from Wollongong Council for Sustainable Illawarra today.

Paul is going around and gathering stories from about 25 different households, putting together some case studies and other materials for the Sustainable Illawarra project. Maybe we’ll end up on their web site, or possibly in a booklet or something to help promote this kind of project to other Councils.

It was great chatting to Paul as I showed him around. He’s got solar power at his house in Port Kembla, plus chooks, vegies, etc so we had a lot to talk about.

Meeting like-minded people is one of the best things about being involved in the Sustainable Illawarra Super Challenge!

    Hi Darren,, Yeah i agree fabulous taking with other trying to do the same. Especailly those who are a bit ahead of us as you gather some great ideas. i love chatting with rich and ally from happy earth they are full of ideas and info that gets you very excited.

    I spent about $120 at magnet mart. and for what i got i thought a got a bargin for that price. I wanted to go again but with the kids it was hard work they were pretty good but i didn’t want to push it. when do they close for good. I might take another trip down and see whats left.

    Cheers. Donna

    Totally! It’s amazing how everyone you talk to has a different story, and they’ve all done different things. There are so many possibilities that someone like me can get bogged down just trying to decide what to do! 🙂

    I’m not sure how long Magnet Mart will be open for. A friend at work told me they’ll be dropping their prices through this week to try to get rid of the stuff that isn’t selling.
