April 2015 – The Beaufort Street Network

Adopt a Tree or Space around Beaufort Street

The Beaufort Street Network and City of Vincent are encouraging all residents, businesses and community groups to adopt a tree or public space.

We want a greener, safer and more comfortable street. But we all need to help out where we can and when we can.

Eh? Isn’t that the Council’s Job?

Really? Public spaces belong to all of us. But while many people love to take care of their own gardens, we all leave caring for public spaces to “someone else”. So our public spaces can look a bit unloved.

What Can I Do?

  • Find a tree or space that needs some love
  • Plants some flowers or plants
  • Water the tree or plants
  • Remove weeds and litter
  • Report any issues

What’s In It For Me?

There are some great benefits for getting involved:

  • It is an easy way to get involved in the community
  • Meet new people
  • Improve your gardening skills
  • Earn the appreciation of your neighbours
  • Choose where and how you want to get involved

The City of Vincent is also seeking volunteers for its ‘Adopt A Verge’ program.

Keeping our streets and verges green and healthy fosters biodiversity within our community and helps to establish greenways – this is all part of the City’s extensive Greening Plan.

Anyone in the Vincent community can register as a tree adopter!

Each adopted tree will be identified and registered, and the City can support adopters by providing advice, resources and physical assistance when necessary.

Beaufort St Art Market Brightens Up Easter

The popular Beaufort Street Art Market was back on Easter Sunday. Not surprisingly, we had an Easter theme and there was plenty of free chocolate courtesy of the sweet teeth at the Network.

The kids activities provided by Arty Brellas and buskers were also fun. There will be more things for families and kids at future markets. Here are some pics from the day.
