At Gawler Environment Centre (GEC) we work with our local community to encourage action on sustainable living and environmental protection. Our focus is knowledge sharing and taking action together, and we present a wide variety of workshops, projects and events every year.
We run monthly workshops and webinars that encompass everything from building wicking beds and managing weeds, to making beeswax wraps and healthy fermented foods. Every second month we run Gawler Repair Cafe, where community members can have household items, clothing, jewelry and bikes repaired free of charge. We run a monthly Eco Arts and Crafts Gathering and assist Gawler Environment and Heritage Association with the annual Understorey native plant sale.
We initiated the innovative Eco Coffin Project, which explores natural burial options. After a successful first course in 2020 the second one is about to kick off in Feb 2021. We are also currently assisting the Gawler Community Garden group to establish Gawler’s first community garden.
We are a community run incorporated not for profit organisation based in the Town of Gawler Administration Centre (43 High Street, Gawler East SA 5118) along with the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board Office.
