Education

Part of the Z-NET Mission is to provide leadership and education for our community. Z-NET Uralla has two main focus areas for education:
 

ZNET Uralla street stall - week long community event
ZNET Uralla street stall - an annual event in Uralla.

Community education with events like training workshops on refrigeration and curtain making, information stalls at local events, and special information nights on topical energy matters. We also encourage any of our Shire residents to visit the project officer at the library on a Thursday afternoon from 2:00pm.
