Dear MASG supporters and members,
We have had another action packed year of projects, advocacy and action on sustainability. Download the MASG Report of activities 2011 here (206kb).
MASG continues to be an important organisation locally and nationally in the move towards a more sustainable world and that is due to the hard work of our committee, staff, volunteers and members.
We hope you have a safe and peace filled festive season and we look forward to working with you all next year.

Comfy Homes Website
Deanna finishes up with MASG today (officially) though she will be dropping in from time to time in the New Year.
Deanna has created the Comfy Homes website and built a myriad of links to local products, services and tradies that can help you make your home more comfy and lower your bills.
Make it a first stop destination whenever you are considering doing a reno or retro or a sustainable build. The link is easy to find: just go to the MASG website and select the Comfy Homes button or click here.
The more it’s used the more feedback we will get so spread the word about this sensational local resource!
The Hub Plot Jottings
At our recent end of year celebration we cooked up a feast in the garden. We cut up vegetables brought from our own gardens and from The Hub Plot. Mischa then cooked up a storm in what seems like the biggest Wok in the world. How delicious was that?!
One of our pre-dinner tricks was a garlic tasting from home-grown garlics ranging on the scale of ‘hotness’ from 4 to 9. 9 being ‘dynamite’. Wow, did they pack a punch!!
Then to top it off a summer pudding made from homegrown organic raspberries, loganberries and boysenberries was given the stamp of approval by all.
Thanks to everyone who brought food to share. What a great evening we all had.
Meanwhile back to work in the garden on Monday and ;
• Peter and grand-daughter completed the wire for our beans/peas to climb up in future
• we’ve had new plumbing done to catch more water from the Baptist Church hall
• there was the great unveiling of the wicking bed seedlings and wow, have they grown!
• Wendy showed her prowess with backing a trailor and delivered a whole load of greens for the compost
• and Dora, with yet another of her wonderful cakes, added to our waistlines and our enjoyment.
Summer pruning workshop; The Garden of St Erth on the 8th of Jan. see the Diggers webite or if you want more info or want to carpool contact Heather 0409327791
Many thanks, have a safe Christmas and we are looking forward to working with you all next year on Monday mornings.
