Overview

Our vision is to transform the Park into a bushland setting for locally indigenous plants and animals – a place where visitors can appreciate richly diverse, natural ecosystems in a beautiful landscape.

Through direct experience and this website, we aim to share our knowledge about the value and importance of the species that thrived in inner Melbourne before European settlement and to encourage their protection and adoption in gardens and parks elsewhere.

So far, we have planted around 260,000 plants in nine distinct vegetation areas, we are cultivating rare and endangered species, propagating most of what is planted and sharing and improving seed stocks with other groups. In 2010 we won the prestigious Urban Landcare Award for our work.
