Hawkesbury Earthcare Centre
Western Sydney University, Building D13, Cnr Beef Cattle Road and Campus Drive, Richmond NSW 2753
The Hawkesbury EarthCare Centre serves as a focus and gathering place for people learning and working together for responsible stewardship of the Earth.
The EarthCare philosophy is based on the principle that the needs of current generations should be met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
From it's beginning as an experimental organic growing project the centre has developed into a broad based sustainable living organisation. It promotes environmentally responsible land use, appropriate technologies, for industry and human settlement, and the development of healthy and self-reliant communities.
