Who we are:
We are the main welfare services provider and community development organisation in Nimbin. As well as the significant services we provide to mainly disadvantaged clients, we have a stewardship role in relation to the Sustainable Nimbin Community Plan and we do work around Food Security, Renewable Energy and Transport in particular. At present our main community development project is 7 Sibley Street - Nimbin's Sustainable Living Hub.
Type of knowledge or skills needed:
In relation to the Sustainable Living Hub project we seek designers, architects, builders, craftspeople and product developers. Right now we are focused on paying off the land purchased for the project. Once that is paid off we will move onto the work on the site, with the first stage being to relocate the existing old house on the site to a different place on the site.
We accept donations of food and blankets. We will be looking for donations of sustainable building and landscaping materials in relation to the 7 Sibley Street project.
