Green Living Centre

The Green Living Centre is a sustainability initiative of Inner West Council. 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, events and programs 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, food waste avoidance, 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 installing solar to worm farming. The list of up-coming workshops is available on the Green Living Centre's website and promoted through its monthly newsletter.


The Green Living Centre runs events throughout the year, including the popular Footprints Eco Festival held at Whites Creek Valley Park in August each year. The first event for 2020 was a Solar and Battery Information Night on 5 February (6-9pm) at Marrickville Library. Events are promoted through Council's What's On page.
