Moreland's Open Space Strategy - join others, have your say until 25th December

What can you remember about the year 2004?
  • Athens hosted the Olympics, 
  • The Asian Tsunami ended the year,
  • There was no iPhone yet, 
It feels like a long time ago doesn't it? So much has changed.

2004 is the last time Moreland City Council reviewed its Open Space Strategy.

Until now, that is!

Moreland Street Gardens - The story so far & upcoming Brunswick Plant-a-gift day (Sat 10 Dec)

What a year!

It's been a busy, productive year for the Friends of Moreland Street Gardens (AKA Adopt A Tree). They've worked on 21 sites and planted over 2,000 plants all in an effort make Moreland a happier, healthier, greener and cleaner place to live by supporting residents and businesses who want to “adopt” public land to plant trees, shrubs, herbs or vegetables.

For people waiting for their site to be adopted, MSG are working on getting more funding and aim to have it by next March 2012. 

For a bit more info, at the the end of this post are links to a few articles from the Moreland Leader or contact Adopt A Tree at

Plant-a-gift this festive season

When: Sat 10 Dec, 10am-1.30pm

South Melbourne Commons opening day! Sat 10 Dec 10-4pm

Out of the Moreland area, but worth a visit to see what is happening!

The South Melbourne Commons (The Commons) is a unique urban development comprised of public open space, community facilities and retail orientated social enterprises on the site of the old Galilee School on the corner of Bank and Montague Street, South Melbourne.

As The Commons is a joint initiative of Friends of the Earth and the Father Bob Maguire Foundation, our vision encapsulates the dynamic social and environmental qualities of both organizations.
