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.

We like to promote recognition of North Sydney sustainability champions who live, work or study in North Sydney.

We open nominations in November each year, then our champs are recognised at the annual Volunteers Dinner in December at the North Sydney Oval Function Centre.

  • Neutral Bay Uniting for converting vacant land into a lush community garden. Regulars and new visitors alike are welcome for it is now 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.
