BOOMERANG BAGS AT THE CO-OP
5th July, 2017

Our collaboration with Boomerang Bags Blue Mountains begins this Saturday at our Plastic Free July Community Celebration at the Co-op where the bag people will be sewing bags, screen printing bag pockets and handing out take home kits.

We have a special opportunity for Co-op Members to volunteer to make bags in our newly appointed sewing room. If you are an experienced sewer and would like to earn your volunteer points sewing instead of working in the shop, you can book in at the main counter but please specify that you’d like to sew.

AIR BEE & BEE….
5th September, 2014

Have you ever seen a reed bee, resin bee, leafcutter bee, masked bee or blue banded bee? They’re just some of native bees out there in all our gardens. Most native bees are quite a bit smaller than the honey bee we’re more familiar with. There are over 1500 species of Australian native bees, 200 of those in the mountains. Most are semi social or solitary, and what’s perhaps more surprising is that there’s really not a whole lot of research out there about them, including big gaps in our knowledge about their distribution.

THE BAGLADY IS BACK FROM IRELAND WITH A MESSAGE: ASAP.
3rd September, 2013

Long term member Shirley Lewis is a passionate Co-op supporter and wants to spread her own message to our community about sustainable living.

Q:   WHAT DOES ASAP MEAN?

A:   As SUSTAINABLY As Possible…..

Shirley Lewis aka the Baglady has been Living ASAP for 15 years now: 10 of those years in Northern Ireland where she campaigned passionately against plastic bags, packaging, litter, and all forms of waste and for a sustainable future for our children and grandchildren.

By midsummer 2011, Baglady Productions had signed thousands of schoolchildren, teachers, parents, and over half the N.Ireland Assembly , to Pledge ASAP:  Give up/cut down one thing, take up/do more of one thing, and to Live ASAP

Now back in Australia, veteran Food Co-opper Shirley is taking a look at: How ASAP can a Baglady live in different communities? Wherever we are, whoever we are, we urgently need to find whatever ways we can, to reduce our impact on our stunning planet home, and return to respect for everyone and everything.

For more Information on Shirley and the projects that she is working on- Listen to

ARE YOU LOOKNG TO BUY FRESH LOCALLY PRODUCED MILK?
6th August, 2013

A fresh food enthusiast, Laura Taylor, is considering setting up a dairy cow share herd in the Katoomba area, enabling people to buy shares in cows for access to fresh, local milk. Laura is currently seeking expressions of interest to find out how much local demand there is for this project.

Each cow is ‘divided’ into 100 shares, with each share selling for (approx) $15. Each share then attracts an (approx) $2.50 weekly boarding fee for care of the cow, and the owner of each share is entitled to 1/100th of the milk produced by that cow each week (expected to be 1-1.5L per week).

If you would be interested in purchasing shares, or for more information about the herd, please contact Laura at hopesclimbshareherd@hotmail.com.
