The Canberra Environment Centre is a non-profit environmental education centre.
We work directly with the community to ensure the best environmental outcomes for the ACT through targeted education, information and practical application. We recognise that a healthy and vibrant community is much more able to take care of itself and its environment than a fragmented one.
Our projects support the community to nourish itself and the environment together, and to sustain themselves into the future.
Imagine a garden that grows itself. Your time in your backyard spent harvesting fresh produce and optimising designs rather than battling weeds or struggling to irrigate. This is the principle of permaculture – a system of designed, permanent agriculture – to work with, rather than against nature.
