Tomorrow’s Change Makers Program

OzGREEN are pleased to announce the Tomorrow’s Change Makers Program is back in 2020 with a slightly different focus. This year the program will run a little like an Eco Club for 12-18 year olds with weekly sessions at the Youth Hub on a Tuesday from 4-6pm. OzGREEN members myself, Kathleen Hannah, and Stella Rees, will support our environmentally minded youth to come together, plan and carry out their own community projects and thanks to funding from the NSW Department of Community and Justice we can offer the program for FREE.

The funding we have received covers the following projects (but we are not limited to these ideas alone):
– indigenous native plants,
– a youth-run nature club,
– a sustainability festival,
– a repair workshop,
– an outdoor youth space

Chrysalis family looking for a rental

Hi everybody, we’ve been issued a termination notice at our place at Boggy Creek because our landlords are coming home from overseas unexpectedly.  We have two months to find somewhere else to live, so please, if you hear of anything about a place to rent for two adults and three kids (17,13,9), please let us know: Melissa 0472626366; Miles 0427458045.  We had planned on bringing home a puppy in four weeks’ time, but would be prepared to shelve that plan if there were no pets allowed.  Thanks, Melissa and Miles (parents of Malachy, Sylvie and Reminy).

Kids Yoga in Bellingen

Kids yoga is FUN! It is a creative, imaginative way to develop a healthy mind and body. Yoga develops social, emotional and physical well-being in kids. We play and learn in a safe, non-judgemental, engaging environment that promotes risk taking, challenges, positive interaction, connection, awareness, laughter happiness and resilience. Marcia is a secondary teacher and has been a practicing yogi for over 20 years. She studied Purna yoga at Byron Yoga Centre in 2016. In December of 2016, she trained with Angela Tonkin and Rainbow Kids Yoga to become a children’s yoga teacher. She has taught yoga for ages 3-18+. She is humbled to be able to provide a safe and fun space for her younger students to explore their physical, emotional and spiritual selves.
