Friends of the Earth 52/50/1, a photo by Collingwood Historical Society on Flickr.
The Friends of the Earth in Smith Street on the southern corner of Perry Street is quite a Collingwood institution. Friends of the Earth (FoE) Australia is a federation of independent local groups working for a socially equitable and environmentally sustainable future.You can find out more about their activities on their website.Their headquarters are on this site in Collingwood where they also operate a cafe and the Collingwood Food Co-Op which first started operation in 1975. Alas, the bookshop that they once operated is no longer here. If you are interested in the history of Friends of the Earth check out the history section of the website.
