Waste 2 Art 2019 catalogue

The 2019 Waste 2 Art Regional Exhibition is on from July 27 – August 17 at the Malachi Gilmore Hall, Oberon.

Entries from residents in thirteen member councils will be on show – make sure you visit and check out how baling twine, strapping and other waste items have been given a second chance at life in awesome pieces of art – just like this one titled ‘Powerful Owl’s nest’ by the Blue Mountains Community.

Made from soft plastics, strapping and discarded fabrics it’s a perfect home for the threatened Powerful Owl species found in the Blue Mountains of NSW.

The theme for this year is Baling Twine and Strapping but it’s not compulsory, you can use anything so long as it’s waste.

Free Community Cooking workshop with Masterchef Kate Bracks

You don’t need to be a MasterChef to cook nutritious, delicious meals that compromises the environment or your back pocket, according to Central West local and former MasterChef winner, Kate Bracks

Cancer Council NSW, in partnership with regional waste and resource management group NetWaste, is bringing a free “Pantry to Plate” cooking workshop to Forbes Town Hall on November 13th, which has been funded by NSW Environment Authority’s (EPA) Love Food Hate Waste Food Smart program.

“These workshops aim to provide families with the confidence to create simple, delicious and healthy food from scratch – all while reducing your risk of cancer and food waste footprint” said Kate.

This is the third year this highly anticipated workshop series has been delivered in Western NSW, and organisers expect this year’s series to be hugely popular yet again.
