About us

Brunswick Communities for Nature is a group of volunteer locals continuing Adopt-A-Tree’s and Moreland Energy Foundation’s “Communities for Nature” program.

The program converted grassed nature strips and green spaces, into native gardens, to create a biodiversity corridor from Merri Creek to Moonee Ponds Creek.

We’re upgrading the nature strips through “Nature Strip Blitzes”, propagating plants, contributing to consultations on council policies, supporting local planting groups and providing advice on converting or upgrading your nature strip too.

We are appreciative of Moreland City Council’s and Moreland Energy Foundation’s support through a quick response grant and everyone who has been involved in our weeding bees!

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of the land and  respectfully recognise Elders past, present and future.

    • Hi, we are a small local group and our goal is to help people revegetate their nature strip. The plants and advice we dispense is also suitable for gardens and any green open space. Our next activity will be a propagation session to get plants ready for autumn and the Sydney Rd festival. We have no membership or structure, just agree to grow plants and run activities. Come anytime.
