Common Thread

Get inspired, make connections and learn about all things sustainability at Common Thread, a regular series of events for our community.

Just as nature evolves, so too does Common Thread.

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

Workshops, walks, webinars, networking and ideas sharing will feature in the Common Thread program. The program that will be guided your input.
