WHEN Subgroups, 2008

WHEN presently has three active subgroups. New members are most welcome and if you would like to participate in any of them, please contact the convener for meeting dates and times. The formation of other relevant subgroups is encouraged.

Gardens and Food
Annie March, convenor (6231 0378)
We are a very active group, which has been running regular produce exchanges, garden sharing, working bees, and information sessions, including a recent workshop on gardening with native plants. At the moment, we have several workshops and information sharing activities in the planning stages.

Sustainable Homes
John Carpenter, convenor (6231 6349)
After running two very successful workshops, one on solar hot water and the other on insulation and residential heating options, the group is now considering a number of ideas for future activities related to making our homes more sustainable.

Sustainable Transport
Margaret Steadman, convenor (6231 4751)
The group has prepared comments on the Hobart City Council's Draft Sustainable Transport Strategy and made a submission to the Premier's Fuel Summit. We are now looking at alternative actions for transport in the West Hobart area as well as the development of a walking and biking map.
