Source wins Environmental Excellence Award!

On Friday night the Source board attended the Environmental Excellence Awards, hosted by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and were very excited to win the community group category!

We won $1500 (which will probably go towards more shelves and a new sign to replace the banner), and a fancy trophy made of King Billy Pine (with a crystal ball on top). Congratulations to all our members and volunteers who have been involved in making Source what it is – a great community driven project which demonstrates many aspects that are central to sustainability and community. Well done to Ben and Lissa who prepared the application, and also congratulations to our fellow co-op friends the tip shop, who received not 1 but 2 awards for their demolition project! Here's 4 of the 5 members of the Source board recieving the award: Jen, Lissa, Ben and Clare.
