When we think sustainable, we think, recycle, reuse, go green, solar power, water tanks, and that seems to be the end of the list. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Since, it is believed for the average iceberg, 1/3 is above the water and 2/3 of the iceberg is underneath the water. So how do we get to see the "rest" of the story, just has how do we see the rest of the iceberg? We go to the Melbourne Library.

Well, people wanting to go GREEN can do the same with this new style library where you can pick the brains of other humans with knowledge in "one-on-one loans".

This way you can find out about worms yourself from Leah the worm farmer, borrow our urban bee keeper, Ingrid, to learn how to have a honey farm on your land or city roof, meet Hermann the permaculturist, while Thami teaches us about putting a garden on your roof. Have you ever wanted to meet a green apartment activist? This is your chance for for twenty minutes. Its like speed dating with Green Gurus. But hopefully, no charges for going over time on loans. Finally, borrow Costa and Daryl to learn about electric cars.
