The Green Living Centre shopfront will be closed from Tuesday 16 April while it undergoes a serious makeover. When we return in May we'll have ramp access to make everyone's lives easier. We'll also have new recycling boxes and displays, including an interactive demonstration of the very latest in LED lighting. The best part? The whole new look is achieved with sustainable materials including bamboo, low VOC paint, LEDs and reused furniture.
The workshop program will continue as scheduled, and you'll still be able to contact us by phone, email and Facebook with any enquiries. We'll also continue to work with our amazing volunteers on a number of projects.
We are updating this section with new Green Living Centre links and information. In the meantime please feel free to access these Watershed information sheets.
