The Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group is a not-for-profit, member-based organisation focussing on projects, events, and practical activities that promote sustainable living in our local communities.
We are home to a number of community action groups made up of dedicated individuals working together to make the Macedon Ranges a more sustainable place to live. If you are interested in becoming involved head on over to the action group pages to discover what we are up to and to find contact details for action group coordinators.
Everyone welcome! We'd love for you to join us.
