Earthbagging at Sustainable Living Namoi Expo 18-20 May

Friday, 18 MaytoSunday, 20 May

Cathie Lamont (intrepid aspiring Sustainable Community builder) trained south on Saturday 21 April to attend the earthbagging workshop at the Calrossy primary/boys high school campus in Tamworth.  “It was a physically, psychically, intellectually and socially invigorating experience” reported Cathie.  “I thoroughly recommend the experience to others interested in alternative building methods for both garden beds and houses.  It was also inspiring to see how involved the schools are in sustainability in our neighbouring catchment area, and to meet people interested in exchanging ideas instead of competing!  I also appreciated the automatic offer of transport from the station by the gardening group!”

Earthbagging will be a feature of the Sustainable Living Namoi expo with Costa demonstrating earthbagging and other principles of Sustainable gardening at Calrossy’s William Cowper Campus on 20 May.  The main expo will be held at the TAFE campus on 18 and 19 May
