The GEC office will be closed on Thu 28 September 2023, but the Coordinator will be working from home and can be contacted on 0413 694 477 or at email@example.com
Apologies for any inconvenience caused. We will re-open at 9.30am on Tue 3 October.
We have moved!
From Wednesday 15th of February, Gawler Environment Centre will be located at 8 Main North Road, Gawler! Opposite Meals on Wheels and the BMX Park.
There is plenty of parking on the road out the front, across the road on Flinders St, and around the corner at the Gawler Central shopping area. We have disability parking at the rear of the building (please ring in advance to see if space is available).
Our office is open from 15 February, but the centre itself is a work in progress. We are currently busy arranging signage, sourcing furniture, and making plans for our garden spaces and possible retail opportunities. Feel free to pop in and have a look.
At Gawler Environment Centre (GEC) we work with our local community to encourage action on environmental protection, sustainable land management and sustainable living. Our focus is knowledge sharing and taking action together, and we present a wide variety of workshops, projects and events every year. We are a community run incorporated not for profit organisation.
We run monthly workshops and webinars that encompass everything from native plant propagation and weed management, to eco arts and crafts and low waste living. Every second month we run Gawler Repair Cafe, where community members can have household items repaired free of charge and help to divert waste from landfill. We partner with Gawler Environment and Heritage Association to run the annual Understorey native plant sale, and support local community groups with their revegetation and restoration projects. We initiated the innovative Eco Coffin Project, which explores natural burial options, and we are currently assisting the Gawler Community Garden group to establish our regions first community garden.
Office hours: Tue-Thu, 9.30am to 4pm (sometimes we have to go out to meetings and workshops, give us call in advance if you are coming in).
Location: Our new office is located at 8 Main North Road, Gawler, 5118.
