Who are We?

We are residents of the Southern Channel who want to reduce our environmental footprint at home, in our community and on the road by using the resources and skills at our doorstep.

Our actions include: home food production; buying local produce; ethical shopping; energy efficient homes; minimising chemical use; reducing waste; and caring for the natural environment.

Our mission statement:

Aiming to increase awareness, accessibility, ease and enjoyment of sustainable living and community life in the Southern Channel, with an emphasis on local produce and activities.
