About Eco House and Garden

The Kimbriki Eco House and Garden is a unique education centre dedicated to exploring how to live in a more sustainable way - a place for you to experience, learn and be inspired.

Set within the Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre, this special area comprises an organic garden and Eco House constructed primarily from materials recovered from the Kimbriki site, otherwise destined for Kimbriki’s landfill.

At the Eco House and Garden you can take part in one of our workshops, come along for a group visit, bring a school group,  or attend one of our upcoming special events.

Or you may simply like to wander through the garden at your own pace.

The Eco House stocks a range of products to get you started with composting and worm farming. Please view our product list below. Products can be purchased at the Eco House by appointment or following workshops. Call to enquire about product availability and if the Eco House will be open.

PRODUCT LIST

The Eco Garden is open Monday – Sunday, 7am - 4.30pm (closed Christmas Day and Good Friday). However, please note that the Eco House and Garden is not staffed at all times.

WATER USE AT KIMBRIKI ECO HOUSE AND GARDEN

We use rain water tanks to supply water to the Eco Garden and nursery. If our rainwater tanks run dry, we do sometimes top up with town water supply. 

Our drip irrigation and micro spray watering system is fitted with an automated weather adjustment rain sensor which shuts down the system when it has rained or is raining. Current Sydney water restrictions allow for the use of automatic watering systems, as long as a rain sensor is fitted to the water controller. 

Our garden hoses are fitted with a trigger nozzle and any hand watering is done before 10am or after 4pm.

The use of town water for dust suppression is exempt from level 1 water restrictions. At Kimbriki our water trucks use recycled water for the majority of our dust suppression on site.
