Sustainable Chippendale

A Sustainable Suburb In the Making

Sustainable Chippendale is a community initiative setup to support the Sustainable Streets and Community Plan in Chippendale. If you are passionate about sustainability we'd love you to join us in getting behind this ground breaking project to establish a practical model for sustainable inner city living in Sydney.

CarriageWorks’ Sustainable Works

CarriageWorks’ Sustainable Works is a series of free community workshops exploring creative sustainability on the last Saturday of every month from 10am to 12pm.

Each month there’ll be three different workshops that you can join in on – it’s your pick!

Workshop topics will be vast and varied, including no-dig gardening, bush tucker basics, bike safety, public art, bartering, revamping your rethreads, soil prep and much more.

To participate in a Workshop you must register on the day. You can register from 8.30am at CarriageWorks’ barn doors, opposite Eveleigh Markets. Class sizes are limited, first in best dressed.

If you're really interested in creating or maintaining a kitchen garden, you can come down a little earlier at 9am and join our Kitchen Garden Club. It’s an informal discussion led by garden experts where you can swap gardening notes, wax-lyrical about organic home grown veggies, composting, soil prep and more, and trade excess food. More info here.
