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.

Free Chippendale Weed Talk and Tour

Did you know chefs from Tetsuyas and other restaurants and cafes pick 'weeds' from our streets for simple, beautiful, healthy salads and soups and good tucker?

Come and see what these are:  Chickweed, Wood Sorrel, Nasturtium and much much more - there's a free supermarket on our streets and most of us have no idea of the bounties and tastes there.

Let Diego open our eyes.  Then you can pick the harvest, too.

Diego has already created a weed tour of Chippendale, while in residency at Frasers Studios, which can be accessed:

- Pine street self guided tour of the weeds, which he produced in 2007 for the Gang Festival, see leaflet here.

- See the self guided tour map here.

- Chippendale googlemap, which he produced during a residency at Fraser's Studios in 2008, see ChipWeeds.

What Diego will provide for Saturday 11th of June will be a revised version of that work, reprinting the flier and map and providing a walk through for a number of guests.
