Technology and Cyber Security talk February 26th 2020

And what an interesting talk it was. Taylor Speechley from the Bendigo Bank in East Malvern took us through the precautions we need to take when we open messages and phishing emails. He pointed out the types of hoax phonecalls we may receive and how we should handle them. Thank you Taylor.

Guest Speaker from the City of Stonnington January 23rd 2020

Bec Nichols from The City of Stonnington was our guest and she gave us a very informative and interesting talk on the meaning & nature of sustainability. Bec outlined how it is being applied by Stonnington Council and what we as individuals can do to live more sustainably.

Specifically, the main practical measures households can implement are:

Solar panels, LED lighting, conserving water, using public transport, bicycles etc, planting natives, using ewaste bins and depots and recycling.

 

Christmas Lunch December 11th 2019

A great time was had by all and Peter Magree gave another of his succinct and interesting talks accentuating our achievements over the year. A pat on the back to everyone.

Next year will be even better again - the move to our new Shed will be the highlight and an event which we're all looking forward to.

Guest Speaker July 31st 2019

Sean Teer came to the Shed and showed us the work of the not for profit organisation Envision. It collects and recycles waste products (predominately bottle tops) to produce innovative products

To quote from their website:

"projects and initiatives including; re-building old caravans, making arcade games, portable mini golf courses and portable classrooms for special needs schools just to name a few. Throughout all our projects we constantly try to minimize our environmental impact through sourcing much of our raw materials from discarded items and materials. A significant part of our work takes discarded items and turns them into unique products, all of which are donated to the most needy and disadvantaged in the local community, around Australia and overseas."
