The Start Up Group for Healesville CoRE met for the first time on 2 March 2017. The group consists of Jeff Barlow and two Yarra Ranges Council staff, one from the Sustainability Unit and the other from Community Development. This team will work to establish a Healesville CoRE Steering Group in early May and a Community Gathering in June. In the first instance, the aim is for the Start Up Group to broaden its base by getting a wider range of interested volunteers involved in the project.
We hope to get a group of at least 10 community volunteers interested in renewable energy projects for the whole of the Healesville community, to form the Steering Group, which will then plan, promote and organise the Community Meeting for the end of June 2017.
