Sustainable Living Education Program


The Sustainability team at Wellington Shire Council is committed to supporting schools, kindergartens and community groups to step up their sustainability actions. We can help embed practices and learning that reduce waste and emissions, contributing to a healthier community for everyone. Programs can be delivered at your location, or at a local venue including Nakunbalook, the brand new Environmental and Cultural Education Centre at Lake Guyatt in Sale.

Our programs are curriculum linked and align with the Learning about Sustainability cross-curricular priority.

Topics include:

  • Get it Sorted! Waste Education
  • Worms and Compost
  • Biodiversity and Wildlife
  • Sale Botanic Gardens
  • Nakunbalook – revegetation planting and guided walks
  • Seed Community Garden – growing food and healthy cooking
  • Transfer Station (Tip) Tour
  • Supporting student leaders

Or ask us about customising a program to suit your needs.
