Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said the workshops will give residents an opportunity to learn how they could help the environment they live in.

“Environmental awareness is the key to keeping your surrounds in the best possible condition not only for us, but for future generations as well,” Cr Fedeli said.

“Participants will be able to learn how to be waterwise, the advantages of solar power and so much more from the comfort of their own homes.

“I encourage those interested, to register for the online series and I look forward to listening your feedback.”

Attendees of the workshops will go into the draw to win a $150 voucher to a local nursey of their choice in the Camden LGA. Each attendance at a workshop will count as an entry, so the more workshops you attend the higher chance you will have to win.
