‘Support local’, ‘buy local’, ‘made local’. These words get thrown around often and have become particularly trendy of late. But what’s all the fuss about supporting local?
As part of our new panel series, you’re invited to our second evening, where we are discussing and addressing some of the biggest challenges that face our community — and the world.
In this panel discussion (17 March) we will be discussing the benefits of supporting local, why it’s important and how you can play a role in the solution to some of the major social and environmental challenges our community faces. Presented by local businesses owners, community advocates and straight up change makers; Estabar, High Tea With Mrs Woo and Feedback Organic.
Free on Wednesday 17th March? We would love to see you there — tickets are available via Eventbrite.
