Green Fabric weaves relationships between people, places & our environments, helping them to build, cooperatively, the houses & communities they would like to live in. We aim to provide a platform to facilitate & promote sustainable community building & living, connecting people, with projects & resources.
It grew out of The Green Swing projects, that began with a desire to demonstrate sustainable, community-oriented infill development & ended with the completion of two multi-award winning developments in the inner-city suburb of Lathlain.
Through the Green Swing success, Eugenie kept hearing “we need more of this development” so she decided to work as a catalyst for this & in 2016, established Green Fabric.
If you are a landowner looking for others to develop with, or if you are searching for like-minded people to create a collaborative & sustainable living environment, we can help.
Green Fabric educates, consults & facilitates in the sustainable community living sector by:
- working with the formation of groups interested in community led developments,
- growing & strengthening your group,
- research & development of models for cooperative building projects & providing information,
- education & mentoring to interested parties & stakeholders &
- working with government organisations to foster innovative building projects & to promote & create real opportunities for affordable housing.
If we can’t help you, we can put you in touch with trusted people who can!
Our passion is to grow a sustainable urbanism that delivers affordable housing & quality of life with social & environmental benefits.
We bring experience in all phases of community development including:
- site search & feasibility,
- overseeing the political process of planning approvals,
- outreach & marketing,
- structuring investments,
- putting together viable development budgets & construction financing packages,
- facilitating options & upgrades selection,
- overseeing construction and assisting the community with move-in.
We provide expertise & know how to assist projects to be informed & become a reality.

Housing Co-operative Consortium
Green Fabric has brought together a national consortium of people and organisations that have worked together developing a governance and funding model which delivers affordable home ownership for key workers and people on moderate incomes.
The consortium understands the issues of relying on a speculative model of development to deliver affordable, high quality housing in the medium and high density market. It has developed a model that enables buyers to access housing effectively at wholesale cost with an estimated saving of 20% – in perpetuity.
