Sustainable Living in

Welcome to SLiK

Sustainable Living in Kingborough was established in July 2010 to meet the needs of residents living in the Kingborough municipality.


We are keen to support your ideas on how to live simply and sustainably. Our members have interest areas in growing food, sharing resources, meeting socially to share ideas, becoming more energy efficient, cleaning up and caring for our local environment and looking for sustainable transport options.


We regularly put on events and workshops.  See what's coming up on our Eventbrite page. We were also responsible for the inception of the Love Living Locally event in Kingston.

Check back later for new updates to our website. We hope to see you again!
