Welcome to our September Newsletter! I just wanted to say a big thank you to our drumMUSTER volunteers who helped out last Friday! You guys are legends! It is such a pleasure to spend time with you! 

Amongst the information below, I have included a couple of quick surveys. I would really appreciate your feedback. Please send the link on to those who you think may not receive our newsletter but would be interested in being involved.

Thank you!

Costa Georgiadis is headed to Forbes!
We are looking forward to welcoming Costa to Forbes to present at Eco Day, which, in 2021, will be delivered in a new format to be able to cater for all Year 5 students in the Parkes and Forbes Shires...and our neighbours at Eugowra.

Over many years we have had requests from schools to be able to offer the day to more children and we have taken the step to make this happen...with a wonderful guest speaker, along with our many other talented presenters.

It's not just all for the kids! Costa is also our Key Note Speaker at our Landcare Dinner at Forbes Town Hall on 28 May...and will be joining us for the Forbes Riverside Garden Open Day on 29 May.

If you are interested in being involved any any of these events, either as a volunteer, or by attending, please fill in our Expression of Interest and we will add you to a contact list for Costa's visit next year.
Please note that if you are expressing interest to volunteer at Eco Day a Working With Children Check is essential. If you require a WWCC or need to renew, click here to go to the Office of the Children's Guardian Website to complete the application.

Are you interested in another drumMUSTER before Harvest at Parkes Waste Depot?
Obviously, drumMUSTERS take a bit of man and woman-power from volunteers.

There still seems to be demand for another muster before harvest and I am keen to know your thoughts.

Just answer the simple yes/no survey below. Two minutes of your time max.

Forbes Farmers Markets
I rarely miss the Forbes Farmers Markets. It is a fantastic opportunity to purchase locally produced food. This reduces km on the road, provides fresher food and is a great chance to talk to the producers. Remember, everyone is required to socially distance....and purchase what you require and keep moving. The next Market will be held at Victoria Park on Saturday, 26 September between 8am and 12pm.
