Wyndham’s Green Living Series happens annually with a wide range of sustainable living workshops and events, aimed at building skills and providing tips to live a little greener. The series includes a mixture of community and council run events with a range of exciting workshops, field days and events hosted by passionate and knowledgeable presenters or community members.
The Green Living Series in 2021 will look and feel a little differently to other years. We will be bringing you a mix of virtual and physical events throughout the entire year; our themed months and yearly program will mean you be inspired to live green all year round!
When is the Green Living Series?
The Green Living Series looks and feels a little differently in 2021, the Series is expanding!
To help you to live green across the entire year we are giving you themed months and events throughout March – November, meaning you will be continually inspired and connected with likeminded community members all year round!
Given COVID-19 and social distancing requirements having the Series spread throughout the year allows both time for contingency planning and the inclusion of safety procedures and measures at each event.
The series will kick off in March, where you can expect a line-up of workshops, activities and events to entertain and inspire. Continue to check the ‘what’s on’ section for event details.
