Ongoing Projects

We have a number of ongoing projects that inspire our community to care for Country and act on climate on a regular basis. Events for these projects are involve our people gathering to engage in advocacy, education or action so that we can keep up the momentum around the area of interest. Come along and join us, meet some new people and connect with our community at one of our following regular events.

Community Clean Ups

On the first Sunday of the month February to November, we gather for a clean up in and around Moonee Valley. We can be seen at Five Mile Creek, Steele Creek, Moonee Ponds Creek and of course along the banks of the Maribyrnong River. Stay tuned for some urban clean ups as well.

Strips Of Nature Project

Strips of Nature Moonee Valley is a community group operating under the auspices of Moonee Valley Sustainability that supports, promotes and enables the creation of residents’ nature strip gardens. In 2021/2022 we helped residents build some showcase nature strips. Scroll through these images to see the different approaches people have taken.

Keep an eye on our events page for upcoming talks and workshops that will build wild-life friendly gardening skills.

Listening To First Nations People

We are committed to listening to and learning from First Nations people knowing they have deep wisdom about caring for Country because of their unique history on this continent. In 2022 we invited Wurundjeri to hold a Welcome to Country ceremony in our home at Dwell. We followed this by a cultural awareness workshop and a writing session where people could craft their own acknowledgement of Country.

In 2023, the referendum year, it seemed important for our community to engage with the ideas around the Voice to parliament. We held an information session exploring the Uluru Statement from the Heart and what it would mean for Indigenous people to have Voice, Treaty, Truth. Our focus was providing information to people rather than telling them how to vote.
