Urban Bush-Carpenters

Living in the concrete jungle with a backyard the size of a car, it's easy to think that composting, chook housing and D.I.Y. carpentry belong to a different generation and/or postcode.

Enter Melbourne's Urban Bush-Carpenters, a group of like-minded city-livers whose MO is to bring the nous and resourcefulness of our parents and grandparents to bear on the parameters of a modern urban lifestyle. The crew hold free monthly workshops on the finer points of salvage-based D.I.Y., which are typically booked out months in advance, but the website has a bunch of free PDFs instructing you on the finer points of bush carpentry and is well worth checking out.
