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.
In 2018, Movies that Matter is screening films quarterly on Friday nights at the Norma Richardson Hall, 15 Buckland St, Woodend. It’s a great hall with a lovely big white wall for screening.
Entry is by donation, there will be wine and nibbles too – also by donation. Our first films for the year are about celebrating nature and biodiversity and some amazing efforts to protect it.
The Woodend Community Farmers' Market (WCFM) is a lively local event that is well supported by the local community. The WCFM currently hosts 50 regular stallholders, from within the Macedon Ranges and the wider region. The market is fully accredited by the Victorian Farmers Market Association(VFMA), meaning that customers can have confidence in the authenticity of the producers within the market, and have the opportunity to build direct relationships with the people who grew or made the produce on offer.
