Events & Workshops


October 2019

Zero Waste Victoria's Zero Waste Festival. October 26th, St Kilda Town Hall. 

Oberon and Audrey will give keynote speeches, and Lauren and Oberon will participate in a panel discussion. 

We can come to you

We give regular talks and workshops on waste-free living. In 2019, Oberon has spoken at Festival 21, and interviewed David Holmgren and Su Dennett about their book, Retrosuburbia. We've given talks at schools, Rotary clubs, bookshops, libaries and community groups, and Lauren and Oberon appeared In-conversation with Sustomi at Alceme in Hobart, and in Melbourne with Erin Rhodes for Pip Magazine. We've also facilitated Waste-free Masterclasses with Hobart's Resource Work Co-operative.

Oberon is an experienced speaker and facilitator, having spoken to large audiences at festivals and conferences, taught at permaculture design courses and lectured at Melbourne University in Ecology. We find that there's lots of interest in Q & A sessions for waste-free living, and so we've spoken as part of panels, in conversation and in Q & A format, with our children joining in on occasion. Our eldest daughter, Audrey, also gives talks about her experiences growing up waste-free.
