Sustainable Macleod is a Transition Town devoted to living more lightly on the planet, creating a vision for the future of Macleod and developing strong community spirit. Projects of Sustainable Macleod include the Macleod Vegie Swap and the Macleod Organic Community Garden. The Macleod Vegie Swap is a place to swap excess produce and meet people in your community. A wide range of home grown and home made produce is swapped including fruit, vegetables, herbs, seeds, preserves, fertiliser and miscellaneous food and garden items. It is held from 11am - 12 noon on the third Saturday of the month in the Rotunda in Macleod Park opposite the Macleod shops in Aberdeen Road, Macleod. We also publish a monthly newsletter and have social outings together: twice a year we go to the movies at Westgarth Theatre; and twice a year we attend a performance of the Heidelberg Theatre Company. The Green and Local Auction is held each year in October to raise funds for the Macleod Organic Community Garden.
