Zuhal Kuvan-Mills is the artist, designer and earth ambassador for Green Embassy, Australia’s first internationally recognised organic fashion label. Zuhal loves working with her herd of Alpacas and buys locally organically produced merino wool and organic silk from silk worms in the Swan Valley. She combines these textiles with her organically grown alpaca wool which she spins on site at her home in the Swan Valley.

Local Aveley girl and eco-model for Green Embassy Madi Carroll is off to Paris to strut her stuff for seven days this month on the catwalks. Madi, a year 10 student at Swan Valley Anglican Community School views the opportunity as a once in a life time chance to achieve her dream to be a model.

Who wants to age gracefully? Not a bunch of Ellenbrook residents who have formed a group called Classy Tarts. The group consists of women over 50 who want to inject a bit of fun and friendship into their lives. They are part of the Red Hat Society that was established in 1998 in the United States and the group’s philosophy is based on a Jenny Joseph’s poem – the opening lines of which read, “When I am an old woman I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn’t go and doesn’t suit me”.

Of course when the group meet for their outings they attend in purple outfits and red hats. Sheryl Olsen who has lived in Ellenbrook for ten years said in that time she hardly made any friends. Now though the group has been a great network for her to meet people. 

Sounds like wonderful fun! For more details about Ellenbrook Classy Tarts, call Ms Olsen on 9297 1050

Ellenbrook is Australia’s most awarded new town. It is the winner of 30 state and national awards.

Why all the success? As becomes evident from these photos it is due to a collaborative approach to it’s initial and ongoing design from Developers, Planners, Architects and Builders.

These parties all worked together to create seven self sustainable communities (also know as townships). Each neighborhood has it’s own center that can be reached on foot within 10 minutes from any house.

Now an urban Town Center boasts an art gallery, restaurants, tavern, and shopping center with 80 shops including one of the largest Woolworths in the state. And the amount of open space and parkland around every corner is breathtaking!
