Apartment & Strata Energy Savings

Apartment Block with Solar Panels

This project assists strata buildings to reduce energy and water use resulting in potentially thousands of dollars of savings per year.

Design a native habitat garden

Habitat Garden

Make your backyard a haven for native animals with this helpful guide.

The design of your garden and the plants you choose to grow will influence the animals and birds that visit your backyard. Your garden can provide important resources for native wildlife including food, water, and protective habitat for birds, lizards, possums, frogs and beneficial insects. Well-designed gardens can help protect native animals from introduced or over-aggressive native species and act as important stepping stones between bushland reserves in the Woollahra area.

Compost Revolution

Compost bins

The Compost Revolution supports residents in composting and worm farming to reduce their waste to landfill. Through both face-to-face workshops and online resources, you can learn more about turning your food waste into valuable, free fertiliser. Residents of Woollahra are also eligible for a discounted compost bin or worm farm.
