Common Thread

Get inspired, make connections and learn about all things sustainability at Common Thread, our free monthly program at Cooinda Neighbourhood Centre.

Bringing together sustainability, the arts, and practical do-it-yourself know-how, Common Thread will connect people who share a common interest in living lightly.

We'd like to see Common Thread be guided or run by the people who take part in it. Expect workshops, networking and ideas sharing.

To get involved in planning or contributing to future Common Thread events please contact us on 8375 6840 or via email.

Our next event

From Garbage to Garden: Composting and Worm Farming - 2 September 2019

Interested in learning more about your compost? Or are you thinking of getting starting and want to dive right in? Spring is the perfect time to start improving your garden!

Join sustainable gardening expert Alan Shepard as we dig a little deeper into compost. In this workshop we’ll explore various practical composting and worm farming methods, according to how much time and how much garden you have to work with. You will also learn tips and tricks for how to kick-start your compost or worm farm and what to do if it’s just not working for you.

Bookings: via Eventbrite. Bookings are essential and places are limited!
