Everything "Made in Nimbin"


 

PO Box 433, Nimbin NSW, 2480

 

 

 

New “Made in Nimbin” labels available

 

The Nimbin Chamber of Commerce is proud to introduce a new labelling system for everything “Made in Nimbin”. We feel that by introducing this system, we will be able to give to the wider Community a greater knowledge of all things which have been created, crafted or produced locally. We believe that by identifying our local products with the “Made in Nimbin” label, we will in the long run give to our Community a greater sense of pride and some tangible economical benefits.

 

Nimbin is not only a place of magnificent landscapes, rolling hills, majestic volcanic rock formations and lush rainforests, it is also a place of awakening where people of different cultures mingle and we inspire them to explore different lifestyles, the land rewards its carer with a wide bounty of produce and artistic pursuits.

 

Nimbin is a place rich in culture and inspiration; it has been for a long time a cradle for renowned artists and new emerging ones, others are dedicated to manage the land with sustainability in mind; all of them deserve to be supported and foster a higher level of recognition for their efforts. 

 

We would like to encourage all our local businesses in supporting this project by purchasing and using this labelling system in all the products which are clearly and indisputably “Made in Nimbin”.

 

To order the “Made in Nimbin” labels please contact:

Peter Hughes ( Nimbin Tax & Accounting ) Ph: 6689 0470 or email: pjh@lis.net.au

1 sheet with 155 labels at $6.00

2 sheets with 310  labels at $10.00

Recently Nimbin Chamber members had the pleasure of attending Councils and RDA - Northern Rivers presentation concerning the " NBN rollout and the Digital Economy from a governance perspective". The presentation was very informative and clearly the presenters from Ipswich and Sunshine Coast Councils proved their regions are well advanced in the planning to be shovel ready for the NBN fibre optic rollout. Further information can be accessed at www.broadbandtoday.com.au.

In order to progress this for the Lismore Local Government Area, Mark Batten, Council’s business facilitator, indicated the initial need for a formal survey and service/reception mapping exercise at the cost of approximately $10K.

Nimbin businesses have expressed their concern about the NBN and as quoted by Dave Lambert, Director of Rainbow Power Company- "Some 30-40% of our business is web and or export related.  To compete in a world environment we need the fastest access to email, internet and telemetry that we can reasonably have.  Large systems are increasingly being monitored by the internet for routine diagnosis of faults.   It can also become an innovative marketing tool as well as for educational purposes."

The Nimbin Chamber fully supports this initiative for the mapping exercise and has encouraged Councilors support for allocation in the budget.
