Tonight’s annual general meeting included a presentation from a Whitehorse sustainability ambassador, who spoke of initiatives to reduce water consumption, particularly through developing a sustainable garden.
Yarrunga has a strong focus on sustainability and recently installed solar panels to reduce its environmental footprint. In addition the Centre is planning to install water tanks to reduce the Centre’s usage of potable water.
