AVWS Working Bee In The Future Community Hub

This month to the chorus of power tools and hammers the Cedar Creek State School and the Albert Valley Wilderness Society held a successful working bee in the future community hub. The joint effort has resulted in worm composting stations, wicking beds and a giant bamboo teepee for climbing veggies. A series of free to the community workshops are now available for booking by contacting the school or the AVWS Facebook page. A name has been chosen for the space, ‘The Green-Pujarbinn Buggeri’.

The space will in many ways replicate a modern, village green, a meeting place that can serve the community. Pujarbinn Buggeri, from the traditional custodians of the land’s Yugambeh language, means “green common ground”, connecting us to the environment we all share. The free workshops featured are to enhance the local environment, experts share their tips on organic farming methods and learn more about our amazing local wildlife. Covid safety guidelines will be in place during workshops and places are limited so please support this wonderful project and book your space.
