Looking to get involved in a community project that will make a difference?
We are creating a showcase sustainability education centre in Seven Hills and need your help.
The last Sunday of every month we hold a working bee at the Sustainability Hub where we undertake a range of jobs to help bring our vision to life. Be part of this great project.
Jobs vary each month and could include help with planting and watering, weeding and mulching, compost-turning, coop-cleaning, general site maintenance. We will also be planning and constructing new feature areas including a food forest, and composting workshop space.
Volunteers can earn 200 GreenMoney points by participating
You can earn GreenMoney points by participating in the working bees. Visit https://greenmoney.com.au/Challenges/Details/183 for details.
Please register your attendance so we can contact you with any updates or change of plans, and so we know numbers. Unfortunately this working bee is not suitable for children.
