Since Ghandi said “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”, I started looking for information on how to live sustainably. Lots of it only applied to the US or the UK, and although the Aussie resources were out there they were often hard to find.
Darren Collins and family are documenting their journey towards a sustainable lifestyle without leaving suburbia. Originally their family consisted of 2 parents and 3 young children, but now includes a few pigs and some chickens! Darren covers a huge range of topics that affect his family such as permiculture and suburban farming.
The Kiama, Shellharbour and Wollongong councils have joined together to create the Sustainable Illawarra project. This project aims to pool the three councils’ resources and knowledge to promote sustainability in a consistent way across the Illawarra.
As part of the project, 120 families across the Illawarra were selected to participate in the Sustainable Illawarra Super Challenge, and we were fortunate enough to be chosen as one of them.
