Forum

During the NSW Physical Distancing period to the end of June, SLA is not inviting the public to attend forums physically.

Forums are held at 7pm on the first Thursday of every month (except January) at Kent House, 141 Faulkner St, Armidale (opp. Central Park). Entry by gold coin donation.

We aim to have a guest speaker or show an interesting film. The gatherings have proved quite popular with topics ranging from Solar Hot Water practicalities, electric vehicles, a glimpse at local food production past, present and future and films such as Australia Pumping Empty and Power of Community, both about peak oil and its likely consequences.

All welcome.
