What would you chuck, change, add or retain about Newstead?
Renewable Newstead aims to convert Newstead to 100% renewable energy by 2015. The project has grown out of a
collaboration between Newstead 2021 and Central Victorian Solar City to work together to achieve this purpose.
Our goals are to:
a) Reduce the amount of energy the town consumes
b) Source all energy we do use from renewable sources which might include a locally-based income-generating power source
The Men's Shed is open Tuesdays 11.30am, 1.30-4pm
Sundays 10.30am- 12 noon

Join friends and fellow food growers on the first Saturday of the month for the Newstead Produce Exchange.
Held under The Red Store veranda (Lyons Street, Newstead) from 10:30am, this free event sees locals come together in an exchange of food, preserves, seeds and gardening ideas.
Bring along any extra fruit or vegetables you may have in your (or the neighbour's!) garden and swap for something yummy! Don't have much growing yet? That's OK - we love fresh muffins for morning tea!
Held in Newstead in January each year.
