CANWin In Action

CANWin’s work is not only under the CANWin label. We are also happy to help in the establishment of projects focused on building a resilient, energy-independent future, and we work with or support many independent organisations.

This page lists active groups that began as CANWin initiatives or that have compatible objectives and methods.

Transition Shire Wingecarribee – Building a self-reliant, sustainable future in Wingecarribee shire.

Fruit Rescue – connects people who have fruit trees with people who can pick fruit

Highlands Harvest – the food trail: locally grown herbs, vegetables, berries and other fruits, olives, chestnuts, free range eggs, truffles, honey, meat goats, milking sheep (for cheese making), beef cattle, barramundi, artisan cheeses. Not to mention grape producers and cool climate wine makers.

Community Exchange Southern Highlands (CESH) – a LETS group, which enables people to trade with one another using a local currency (Gibs) instead of Dollars. It might sound complicated, but really it’s easy and rewarding.

Landshare Australia – inspired by the hugely successful UK program, this site matches those with any spare land with those who have none and a hankering to grow their own food.

Bundy on Tap – the group behind Bundanoon’s undertaking to not sell or give away bottled water.

Moss Vale Community Garden – grows a broad variety of edible plants with the assistance of local visitors and volunteers.

Penrose Harvest Festival 2013 a cousin to the popular biennial Sustainable Living Festival.
