Sustainability at UWA

Urban Sustainability

The contents of this part of the web site are about the small things you can do at home to work toward sustainability. Generally they will help you to make aconnection between the land you live on and the nature of the living world around you.

For example, keeping bees will make you more aware of the seasons, when the 'honey flows', when the bees swarm and generally the weather and what plants are flowering at a particular time of the year.

Growing you own vegetables, even on a small scale will make you aware of nutrient requirements of plants, the effect of watering cycles, rainfall and evaporation and mulshing garden baeds etc.

These are all very small things but build up an awareness of the living world around you.
