At its most recent virtual workshop precinct members heard about sorting business finances and how the so-called circular economy could add value to Samford. The group also explored the best ways to collaborate to build economic resilience as a Sustainable Business precinct which attracts custom to Samford businesses.

More sparks for the War on Waste at Samford Commons

Ellena at Samford Commons organised a big E Waste program in the wonderful Samford Valley in the new year. Many large bins of electrical waste were deposited by Samford residents for repair, re-use, recycling and repurposing.


This is in addition to the partnership with Mandy at Luvaberry Farm where they sell frozen glut fruit which would otherwise have gone to landfill. About 2 tonnes of fruit already sold to locals and other outstations are popping up. Great work Ellena!
