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.

However if there was one complaint we all hear quite often, it would usually be about dumped rubbish on the kerbside and streets. These piles of unwanted household stuff are costly to clean up, often unsafe, and a blight on our stunning natural surroundings. Items can also end up in our parks and waterways, playing havoc with wildlife (poor fish).

We asked local veggie garden enthusiast Jessica Brewster for the lowdown on what’s hot to grow now, plus she has dished some dirt on a few tricks, tips and little-known facts about your edibles.
