Street Meetings - Sustainable Gardens

Street Meetings are a strategic part of the Grow Goulburn Mulwaree Farms and Gardens project and a key part of strategy to build the community street, or group thereof, at a time. As well as being a building block of the Sustainable Gardens part of the project, they are key to aligning to the mitigation actions in the Council's "Climate-Change-Assessment-and-Adaptation-Planning-Report".

Ideally each street or group of streets will form a street committee to roll-out the Garden Sustainability project with the intent of keeping the garden cool and hence the house, as well as decreasing the risk of bushfire, whilst increasing biodiversity, especially pollinators such as birds, bees and butterflies. Another objective is to support the growing of vegetables. Naturally it is up to each garden owner as to how much they would like to do in their garden.

It is hoped that the committee can help direct support for the likes of Aged Pensioners in the street as a group most at risk from rising temperatures.

For the more adventurous streets, other beneficial projects can be added over a period of time, such as to reduce the street's carbon footprint. However the Sustainable Gardens will reduce the street's carbon footprint by increasing biodiveristy and keeping lawns longer and avoiding bare ground. 

At this stage Community Voice is looking for two volunteer streets to act as a pilot.
