Sustainability Champions

Everyone is a winner when it comes to sustainability projects!

It doesn't matter if your project is big or small, it's really about spreading the word and inspiring others to get involved.

Council would like to highlight some of the incredible environmental work undertaken in 2017 by some of our local residents. 

The four sustainability champions in 2017 are:

  • Stephen Jacobs for his ongoing commitment and work as a member of the Coal Loader Community Garden. Barring illness and holidays, Stephen has not missed a scheduled day at the community garden in eight years.
  • Annemie Pelletier for establishing a local branch of Boomerang Bags. A grassroots, community driven movement that meets each Wednesday in North Sydney (10am-1pm) to sew bags made from recycled materials
  • Neutral Bay Uniting for converting vacant land into a lush communtiy garden. The garden welcomes regulars and new visitors alike and has turned into a social space for those seeking inspiration in times of depression, illness or unemployment
  •  The Love Crows Nest Herb Garden opened in late 2016, when a semi-neglected garden bed was transformed into a visually and aromatically pleasing community herb garden in the heart of Crows Nest
