• Marrick & Co NSW’s first One Planet Living Community

    Sustainability |
  • There’s a lot of talk about sustainability these days - about developing communities that are better for us and the environment.

    However it’s Marrick & Co, a development of apartments and terrace homes in Marrickville, which has been the first ever in NSW to be rated a One Planet Living Community.

    Based on 10 principles from carbon footprint to culture and community, One Planet Living is a vision of a world where it’s attractive and affordable for people to lead happy and healthy lives within their fair share of the earth’s resources.

    With sustainability fundamental to its design, the Marrick & Co development takes cues directly from the suburb it’s surrounded by.

    Fresh initiatives like Marrickville’s community gardens which feature rotating communal plots, citrus orchards, native gardens, worm farms, bee hives, compost bays and garden groups which share gardening and sustainable practices.

     

     


    The community also hosts the Marrickville Market which every Sunday is said to sell more certified organic and fresh fruit and vegetables that any other market in Australia.

    Bike Marrickville is a volunteer-run not for profit group of locals who actively promote cycling for transport and recreation as a way to improve the quality of life and protect the environment.

    Marrick & Co takes this same community-minded approach. Residents can share everything from books to gardening tips and they all have easy access to a roof and kitchen garden, complete with a tool shed, lawn and BBQ space.

    One of the defining features of Marrick & Co is a community library. As well as its progressive design and beautiful open internal spaces, it hosts expansive recreational gardens, a children’s playground and community café.

    It makes sense that the sort of community initiatives that support a greener future and sustainable living are happening  in Marrickville.

    After all, it’s home to NSW’s first One Planet Living Community.
