Sustainable Watsonia provides opportunity for local community join together to build a more sustainable and resilient community. We are a diverse, inclusive, welcoming and safe place for everyone. Initiatives include food swaps, repair cafe, sustainable living workshops, transition streets and zero waste community lunches. Things are happening throughout the year so check this page or our Facebook Group page for regular updates.

Sustainable Watsonia is sponsored by Watsonia Neighbourhood House and Banyule City Council under their Transition Towns initiative.  More information is available on the Sustainable Watsonia Facebook group page (Facebook login required) and on the Transition Towns Facebook page.

Greener-Houses-Logo-1As part of the Greener Houses Growing Greener Houses Project, which ran mainly from 2009 - 2011, Watsonia Neighbourhood House was chosen as one of five Neighbourhood Houses to be retrofitted as a demonstration centre to showcase the principles and operation of low energy and low water use design features, technologies and appliances in family homes.

The House has continued to be committed to environmentally sustainable practices and in promoting awareness of these practices within our community. For more information see our Environmental Sustainability page.
