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.

Transplant of our Tahitian Lime‏

We have an exciting new bike path coming through Chippendale, but unfortunately our beautiful and healthy Tahitian Lime‏ was on it's way and we had to transplant it, here are some photos of how it went!
