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.

New garden angels

Last week we got some new lovely and enthusiastic neighbours putting their hands up to help take care of our gardens! Our gardens can't survive without amazing people like these two, so a big thank you to them! See what they have been up to:

Tanaya went out with Michael Mobbs and put compost and mulch on the fruit trees on the southern side of Myrtle st between Pine and Shepherd and took out about half of the compost from the rotating compost bin outside 58 Myrtle st.

While they took out compost from it someone neither of us knew walked up and emptied a bucket of food waste into the bin; so they introduced themselves and shared the pleasure of turning food waste into healthy compost for our road gardens! That is what it is all about!

Tanaya and Vince live in units in Dangar place and took home a glass jar with some mung beans in it to grow so that’s a little bit of food she can grow in their unit! It doesn't matter how small your place is, there is always a way to grow some food, which is great for dinner and will also eventually help grow our little community of bees, lady bugs, etc, all essential for our environment!

Tanaya and Vince have also put their hands up to write some articles for our website, so you will be hearing more from them soon!
