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
