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.

Road Gardening News & Tips

  • Jeff is going to garden on Saturdays and now he has the combination lock number can easily get gear from the shed - same for anyone who has the combination to the lock.
  • Keep an eye on the map of compost bin locations and whether they're full on the Compost Bins Page
  • This coming Friday we'll install a simple device to make some of the new raised garden beds  self-watering.
  • We should have a new base for one of the bins in Shepherd street to install this Friday as well, thanks to Sean
  • Check out the new lucerne mulch on the citrus and some other plants - it looks terrific. We got it out before the rain came so it has had a handy watering in over the weekend.  Thanks Sydney Council for providing the mulch - much appreciated
  • There's plenty of leaves on the bay trees if you want some fresh bay leaves any time - much nicer to cook with than dry ones bought from the shops.

Here are some photos of us gardening last Friday.
