It's shed competition season. Jacinta Cleary, editor at ReNew magazine (the magazine of the Alternative Technology Association), has been in touch to mention their new Sustainable Shed competition which is offering 20 watt solar panels as the main prizes in their search for sheds that excel in sustainability (each winner will also receive a copy of Makers, Breakers & Fixers: Inside Australia’s Most Resourceful Sheds by shed researcher Mark Thomson). Click on the link above for details of how to enter (the competition is only open to Australian and New Zealand entries) but the judges are looking for:
1. Sustainable shed construction e.g. the use of recycled materials
2. Renewable energy to power the shed, including solar and wind power or other renewable methods.
3. Commitment to DIY projects in the shed, with an emphasis on these projects being sustainable.
