Residents of real estate in Carnegie are encouraged to embrace a more sustainable approach to their gardens, with the Glen Eira City Council launching the Neighbourhood Sustainable Gardening Program for schools and organisations across the region.
With more than 400 members currently, the program aims to promote an awareness of the environment and help people better understand how to make the most of their garden through sustainable practices.
If you're planning on creating a vegetable patch, fruit trees, compost system, or water-wise features you can register for advice, which includes receiving a free sign for the fence as identification. The same goes if you're going to grow local indigenous plants or house chickens.
With reminders for regular upcoming events and garden information tailored for their specific area, the program aims to help you embrace sustainable gardening and flourish the local community with vegetables and flowers in the near future.
If you're interested in purchasing real estate in the local area, now could be the perfect time to get in touch with Matt Hurlston at Ray White Carnegie to discuss the options open to you and your family on the housing market throughout the community.
