The Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living (MCSL, the Centre) is a showcase for sustainable homes and gardens, with the goal of promoting sustainable living. The unique facility is entirely self-sufficient. It generates its own power, recycles and reuses all rain and waste water, and manages all organic waste on site. The Centre is guaranteed to impress. The facility also boasts a large garden demonstrating a wide array of sustainable gardening principles, proudly maintained by volunteers.
