Wild side of sustainability

?????????????????????During the coldest months of August people in the Central Highlands of Victoria celebrate a month long festival of words every year. Words in Winter is ” a celebration of words, stories and ideas in all their forms shared by locals and visiting presenters through readings, poetry, theatre, music, talks, workshops, visiting authors, and exhibitions.” Hepburn Relocalisation Network will stage Yarns on the wild side of sustainability on Sunday August 3rd. Local speakers will spin their yarns about their experience in the pursuit of more reasonable living.

Taking the stage amongst local sustainability bunch to discuss the wildside is David Holmgren,  hot on the heels of his national tour with Nicole Foss. In Sci fi Hepburn David will discuss scenarios. Are they imaginary or real?
It is a free event, and should be a cracker afternoon at the Rex Arcade lounge.
Talking about the Rex on August 3rd, our resident nonagenarian poet Venie Holmgren will also be taking the stage in the morning. She will be performing her stuff  in “Poetry morning”. A must-see performance as well.
