Be the change you want to see
by Peter Rutherford - Senior Ecologist – Kimbriki Eco House & Garden
How can we work together to inspire faster ecological change and action throughout our community? How can we deepen our connection to nature and all living things?
In all our Kimbriki tours and workshops we begin by defining ecology and state that all our work is about this primary principle.
So, what is ecology?
From the Greek language:
Therefore: Ecology simply means - Taking care of everywhere I go.
The Kimbriki Eco House & Garden Education Centre is known far and wide. Most people know where it is and love it.
Kimbriki is a resource recovery and recycling centre providing an essential service to the residents of the Northern Beaches. We aim to reuse and recycle as much as we can.
Over the last few years our records show that Kimbriki is reusing and recycling around 80% of everything that comes in to the site. We’d like to thank the community and our customers for supporting the reduction of waste to landfill and for being such great recyclers.
Our aim is to increase this result. The better you can sort your waste and recycling, the better we can reuse and recycle it! Our education philosophy is firmly based on what we call the 4 R’s - Rethink. Reduce. Re-Use. Recycle. It’s simple but very effective if we all actually try and live by it!
We are doing everything we can for you and we’d love you to do everything you can for us. Remember, Rethink, Reduce, Re-use and Recycle!!
As Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see”.
Come and do a free composting, worm farming, organic gardening workshops with us here at Kimbriki, or organise for your local schools to come on special ecology excursions to Kimbriki.
We also love hosting ecological tours for special interest groups (eg Gardening clubs, Probus, Rotary, TAFE, Universities, etc).
