To become more sustainable, you don’t need to make radical changes to the way you live – far from it. In fact, even if you live in an apartment, there’s still so much you can do. Whether you want to grow a few herbs on your windowsills, ditch the chemicals, eat seasonally or get smart with energy or water savings, we want to help you take your first steps on the green trail.
That’s why Green Villages is introducing a Green Up Your Life series. Over three two-hour workshops in July, August and September, you’ll hear from local experts who’ve gone green at home, work and play.
Greening starts with your nest, so the obvious place to start the series is Green Your Home. From a perch in the Surry Hills Library on Monday 16 July (6.30-8.30pm), our experts will inspire you to make a start on green action at your place. The shoots of this session also reach outside the home with tips on how to get neighbourly, and share and swap to reduce your footprint.
The conversation will be helped along by Sydney resident Sue White (freelance journalist whose work appears in the ABC’s Environment pages, G Magazine, and The Sydney Morning Herald, in case you missed our profile on her earlier). She’ll be joined by local trailblazers – including a green renter from Eco House, Robbie Baldwin; green mum and homeowner Jackie Lau, as well as dedicated watt-watcher and Origin Energy’s home-energy-efficiency expert, Anne Armansin.
These evenings are designed for those who are thinking about going green, or have started to show some shoots. It’s free, but bookings are essential so grab your seat here.
