Greening Woolloomooloo


  • “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children” GREENING – the phenomenon of vitality and freshness being restored; “the annual rejuvenation of the landscape” In urban “landscape” nature needs a little help to promote rejuvenation, with the integration of art and gardening with education and community building in the context of a metropolitan city.

  • GREENING WOOLLOOMOOLOO seeks to create and maintain community gardening projects, fostering the generation of strong social capital and the development of a sense of “pride of place” for every member of the Woolloomooloo community.
  • GREENING WOOLLOOMOOLOO is focused on garden & art projects that facilitate the flexible use of space to accommodate changing land-use in Woolloomooloo without placing any imposition on the owner of any land, while enabling the residents of Woolloomooloo to enjoy & beautify their living space.

    The memory of the amazing urban garden on Dowling street is fading! I’m really dissapointed in the how the whole wonderful project was handled by the powers that be. Disgusted with housing nsw and the city of sydney council. Lets see what bourke street park is REALLY all about – before they go calling it ‘community space’ or ‘gardens’ :)
