Taking inspiration and shape from the scenic coastline of the Northern Beaches, the new Harbord Diggers is giving back to the place it calls home by putting sustainable and ecofriendly solutions into place as part of the clubs’ holistic plan.
Our commitment implementing 6 simple changes to reduce single-use plastic across the Harbord Diggers precinct has granted the Diggers the recognition as a Surfrider accredited ‘Ocean Friendly Business'.
Harbord Diggers is proud to stand on the beautiful Freshwater peninsula. These sustainable solutions have been put in place so that the community and future generations can enjoy calling this place home.
Venues such as the Diggers, play a very important role in taking the first step toward protecting the environment, which is why we are actively promoting these initiatives.
