We enjoyed a great turn out to the Threatened Species Film Night at Milton Theatre
We recently held a PLASTIC FREE JULY event called
‘TIDY, SWAP, WATCH’ ON Saturday 22 July 2023.
We held TIDY around the area around the Ulladulla Sea Pool to maintain the beauty of our local environment.
Individuals were able to SWAP their clothes at the Clothes Swap, embrace slow fashion and help prevent clothes ending up in landfill.
We WATCHED ‘Peloton Against Plastic‘, hang out with like-minded souls and
be inspired, informed and entertained.
The Treading Lightly – Re-Generation – Youth Agents of Change are a group of young people who care about the environment in which we live in.
They are committed to making an impact, and invited the community to see how slow fashion can make a difference, specifically through the way we purchase and dispose of clothing here in the Shoalhaven.
We joined together on Sun 21st of May 2023 to hear form local businesses and organisations who lead the way in slow fashion.
During May and June we held four Mushroom Growing Workshops at the Treading Lightly Hub
Author, editor and gourmet mushroom grower Marita Smith from Milton Mushrooms shared her expertise and knowledge so the 48 attendees could learn to grow their own mushrooms at home. The interesting sessions taught them how to safely forage, harvest, grow and cook this nutrient-dense and abundant produce.
On the 19th of June 2022 at the Milton theatre, we screened a local film highlighting the importance of connecting Aboriginal Elders, fire practitioners and youth to create healthy communities and Country.
Cultural Burning for Resilience is an Aboriginal-led community project, supported by the University of Wollongong’s Global Challenges Program and Treading Lightly Inc. The action research project brings together Aboriginal high school students with Yuin Elders and cultural land management practitioners from the South Coast to learn about good fire, bad fire, and connection to Country.
The project was a collaboration between Yuin Indigenous Elders and community –
Ulladulla Local Aboriginal Land Council and local Yuin cultural fire practitioners; students from Ulladulla, Batemans Bay, Bomaderry & Nowra High School students & teachers.
We were so excited to finally be able to bring community together to watch this beautiful film on the big screen here on Yuin Country.
You can now view the movie yourself at home. CLICK HERE
