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.

Gardening This Week

Gardeners: tomorrow, Friday 19/08, we'll work on the vertical garden in Pine St and do more on the new bed at the corner of Shepherd and Daniels.

Saturday 20/08; we'll garden from 11:30 to 1pm - some gardeners will join us from Willoughby.  Geoff may join us to fix the new vertical garden and make it stable - either way he'll do this soon so we can finish the job in the next week.

Wheelbarrow woe:  about three weeks ago our orange wheelbarrow went missing on the last day of work on the raised bed gardens in Shepherd Street - does anyone have it or know where it is, please?  We need it each week.

Wheelbarrow woo hoo:  another of our wheelbarrows had a flat tyre and Paul has paid for a new tyre and fixed it; hat tip to Paul, thanks.  He reckons it was used when too flat so the air nipple was broken and he had to replace the whole tyre tube.  I've got a car pump for pumping them up so don't hesitate to use it if you notice a flat wheelbarrow tyre.
Info: There's info about the gardening we do on the Sustainable Chippendale web page  - http://www.sustainablechippendale.com/road-gardens/

Drone youtube of garden: Check out the very cute youtube link there taken from a 'drone' of the community garden in Manly Vale - someone flew a little 'drone' over the garden with a camera on it; snazzy stuff.  If anyone here reckons they can do the same for our road verge gardens please contact me and we'll get a youtube up of ours, too!
