Latest News 7 Sibley St - Nimbin's Sustainable Living Hub

Sibley Street – there’s stuff happening! We are thrilled to announce that WE GOT A GRANT for 7 Sibley Street. Yep that's right.... $50,000 towards Stage One. YIPPEE. Thanks to NSW Government’s Social and Community Housing Improvement Fund via Family and Community Services. The project will involve an additional $25,000 in costs. We have $10,000 in reserves so we needed another $15,000 for Stage One.

We say needed because $7,500 was raised at the Art Auction on 15th October 2016! Which means we only need another $7,500. To donate to this project to get it over the line – contact NNIC on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Builders wanted: to help with the CAREFUL demolitions (as we will be salvaging and recycling whatever we can) – we are waiting for DA approval and in the meantime we are compiling a list of people willing to help with the demos. Please contact Nat or Guy at NNIC.
