Making Sustainability Second Nature
Second Nature is a community program to make sustainability second nature in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.
We're lucky to live in a unique and beautiful corner of the world. As incredible as our home is, it needs our help to continue to thrive.
That’s why we're working with you to make sustainability more than just an occasional concern. We're keen to make caring for our place a normal part of our every day, in the way we work, live and play.
So, we're here to help with free resources, events, initiatives and info.
The more people who join our Second Nature community, the greater positive impact we will have for the good of our ‘hood.

Mindful decluttering during lockdown

Life in lockdown continues to challenge our community in new ways. With spring on our doorstep, and more of us working and schooling from home, it’s tempting to tackle those nagging cleaning and decluttering projects, possibly resulting in a small mountain of stuff we no longer want or need. There is no better time to learn a few good tricks for turning our trash into treasure, so we can mindfully manage the excess.
Winter in the garden

As you can’t head out to the nurseries for ideas, we asked Horticulturists Narelle Happ from A Garden for Life and Mark De Wolf from Landmark Gardens for their tips on how to keep your garden beautiful and productive over winter.
