We often get asked whether it is legal to plant the grass berms found beside the footpath on most residential roads and whether these are a good place to plant fruit trees. Come along and find out. At our March meeting we will be sharing ideas for using our local berms to establish ‘urban bio-corridors’.
The topic will include a discussion of Council rules, how to plant a low maintenance garden, benefits to local flora and fauna – including local honey bees, effects on stormwater, and neighbourhood amenity.
For the first time our monthly community meeting will be taking place outside in the beautiful Wilton Street Community Garden. All welcome – Wednesday 9 March, 7pm in the garden behind The Wine Vault and Gypsy Tea Room.
