Green Living Centre

The Green Living Centre is a sustainability initiative. It started in Newtown in 2003 and has been working with the local community to live more sustainably since then.

The Green Living Centre runs workshops and projects around the inner west  to inspire and support the local community to reduce their environmental impact. The Green Living Centre's experienced staff work with local people and organisations to support sustainable living.

Please contact us for tips and advice on how to live more sustainably – worm farming, composting, energy and water efficiency, recycling, natural cleaning, eco-renovation and more.


The Green Living Centre's workshop program provides practical skills and knowledge on a broad range of sustainable living topics from worm farming to going renewable. The 2019 workshop calendar is available on the Green Living Centre's website and monthly newsletter.
