The next Cafe Chew (August) will be devoted entirely to the subject of water.
It is a hot topic locally and will be nationally too with the Murray Darling Water Management Plan due in the next few weeks and the interest groups are lining up to stake their claims.
I have attached a couple of documents to help those who are interested become better informed so that our discussion can be more fruitful.
Bathurstians have their chance to participate in the National Tree Planting Day at Boundary Road reserve.
Great fun for the whole family.
Meet at the top of the reserve, entrance off Boundary Road, just up from the Blayney Road.

I have just recently finished reading a book about "recycling" in a general sense. The book's title, "The Same Ax, Twice" suggests an interesting conundrum. If the owner of an ax ( or axe) replaces the handle twice and the ax head once in his lifetime, is it the same ax?
Here is an opportunity to ask questions make comments and build a vibrant community albeit virtual for some of the time at least. Interested people right through our region are free to add a topic and comment on others topics and comments.
Over time this could be a rich resource and make links between schools and individuals which might be difficult via other means.
To post questions or comments, you will need to register with the web site, which is a fairly simple process of providing a username and email address.

This image was uploaded with the post CSU Sustainability Conference - Wagga Wagga.
Last week I attended Tech Trade 09 at the Wagga Wagga campus of CSU and as the theme of this conference was sustainability, I thought it was worth reporting on here and passing on some of the lessons being learned by CSU which are worth noting in our community too.
Issues which were covered included building, energy efficiency, renewable energy sytems, community awareness , carbon polution abatement, food production, biodiversity, transport systems and water conservation.
