10/10/10 Global climate working bee in Mt Eden Village - Updates

Here are some updates from the Mount Eden Village People:

I recently put the posters up in our local shops and the response has been very positive. One of our local shops, the Essential Deli, has offered to donate the food for our working bees celebration on the day. Others are happy to come up with something for our treasure hunt and the raffle tickets (all food related, no stuff) and to collect vegetable leftovers for our compost bin workshop on the day. » Read more
