Work together to enhance your neighbourhood

Thinking Big

Street, estuary or coastal clean ups and working bees in your local neighbourhood are a great way to gather neighbours for a common purpose.


Street clean up 2Can your neighbourhood plant gardens collectively for bees or native birds?  Is there a local stream or coastal area that could do with some tender loving care?  Does the Council have a programme to help you enhance your local environment?  Clean ups and working bees provide a great opportunity to come together for a common purpose and enhance your neighbourhood.

Do you have a neighbour that needs a bit of help in their backyard?  You could consider a permablitz or backyard blitz to help them out.  This works by people volunteering to assist and then having their backyards blitzed once they have attended a certain number of activities.
