East Gippsland Verge Gardens
East Gippsland Verge Gardens is a new group promoting the development of verge gardens to cool and beautify our streets, and provide habitat for local fauna, including pollinators (beyond European bees).
By planting council compliant verge gardens and street trees, the group will help re-green the cities and towns of East Gippsland and reclaim hundreds of linear acres lost to fires, flood and estate development, for our wildlife.
Greening the streets and covering the soils with mulch or plants will also prevent the development of urban heat islands. An urban heat island is one places where the street temperature can reach fatal highs.
