National Science Week: Building Community in your Street (Perth City)

Do you know your neighbours? Do you long for the sense of community in your street that you had as a child? Since the COVID19 pandemic, many of us have come to realise just how important our local neighbourhood is during times of crisis.

To celebrate National Science Week this year, come and discover how much science there is in your community – from composting to gardening to cooking, your neighbourhood is a ready-made community to share knowledge and build resilience through food.

At this workshop, you will hear two inspiring stories about geographic community - the community around where you live. From book exchanges to shared compost systems, street parties to movie nights, you are sure to leave inspired to think about your local area and what you can do it make its bonds stronger.

Suitable for ages 10 years and over. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided.

This National Science Week project is brought to you by Switch your thinking, Perth City Farm and the City of Perth and supported by the Australian Government.
