Education & Workshops
Reverse Garbage runs eco-art workshops in schools, at festivals, for community groups and at our urban environmental education facility located in our warehouse. Our workshops fuse art and environmental education and are suitable for a variety of audiences.
Within the workshops, we teach which natural resources our materials come from and participants develop an appreciation of how consumption and waste impacts on our environment. The creative application of salvaged materials also encourages thinking outside the square and about ways that ordinary objects that are often deemed as rubbish can be reused.

In 2007, Reverse Garbage purchased an art workshop van, enabling us to travel more easily to schools and community events. We thank The Gambling Community Benefit Fund, who provided a significant contribution ($22,732.00) towards this new purchase.
We would also like to thank Helen Abrahams (local Councilor for Dutton Park Ward) and the Lord Mayor for the Liveability Grant that assisted in the creation of our on-site urban environmental education facility.
In 2009, supported by the Lord Mayor's Suburban Initiative Fund, we re-vamped the Reverse Garbage warehouse. This included constructing new snaking isles and low-lying bays that created more space to fit and display materials and provide a more pleasant shopping experience. Educational signs with colourful perspex displays were purpose built to label each section of the warehouse.
