Hills Harvest Exchange (HHE) is a community fruit and vegetable swap held on the first Saturday of the month from 10 am to noon at the Adelaide Hills Natural Resource Centre. It is going to be held this Saturday on June 2.
Members bring along their excess home grown or home baked produce and take home any produce they can use. This reduces food wastage and food miles and gives members access to fresh food. Membership costs only $5 per year.
This month, we are commemorating World Environment Day by celebrating the work of people who have been nominated by members of the community as Quiet Green Achievers. If you are coming to the HHE, you are welcome to attend the small ceremony and a shared lunch.
New members are encouraged to take part. You may come along to see what happens before you decide to join, have a cuppa and you must try the guacamole.
Check if you can reduce your home energy bills.
AHNRC now has a Home Energy Audit Kit available for loan, so you can test your electrical appliances and energy use.
A home energy audit using the simple kit and audit checklist will help you to understand where you use energy in your home and where you may be able to make saving.
Contact AHNRC for more details.

The AHNRC maintains a small specialised reference library and range of DVDs, which members can access. We also have a herbarium of local plant species.
There is a wide range of free brochures and fact sheets also available covering topics of interest to the local community.
The Norton Summit region contains a variety of native plant species, but these plants are almost impossible to find at local garden centres.
The aim of the Native Seed Bank is to provide a source of native seed for local residents to grow so they can revegetate their properties with indigenous plants. This promotes biodiversity and habitat while retaining the local native plant species.
