Our environmental strategy focuses on the links between community wellbeing, sustainability and biodiversity.

We think outside the boundaries of our centre, and respond to the Marrickville Council Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan, emphasising the value of our centre as an ecological stepping stone to link with the Cooks River. We aim to address issues of species isolation and habitat fragmentation in the urban environment, as well as providing opportunities to the community for education and direct involvement.

The space we have here provides opportunities for a number of hands on projects, such as the community garden, composting, the schools art and sustainability exhibition, wildlife monitoring and re-vegetation.
