Planting in Small Urban Reserves

Council was successful in obtaining a Communities Environment Program (CEP) grant from the Federal Government to undertake weeding and planting at three Eltham reserves: 

  • 20A Henry Street, Eltham
  • 17A Ruskin Court, Eltham 
  • 120 Arthur Street, Eltham

The works seek to help enhance wildlife habitat within the urban environment of Eltham, through targeted weed control and native species planting in urban pocket reserves.

We will be planting several native species including Eucalyptus and Sweet Bursaria, and Council will continue to water the plantings for two years.
