GMCT: Planting trees for a resilient city

Victoria's Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust was recently announced as an implementation partner for the ambitious Living Melbourne strategy developed with Resilient Melbourne and the Nature Conservancy for a greener, more liveable Melbourne.

This strategy seeks to promote the idea that cities and nature can coexist through greening suburbs and city blocks, inspaces both private and public. GMCT’s role as a significant landholder in metropolitan Melbourne positions us perfectly to partner with the initiative through our ongoing tree planting and environmental sustainability work. GMCT is proud to be part of the future of a greener and more resilient Melbourne.

In celebration of National Tree Day on 28 July, and as part of our goal to contribute to a greener Melbourne, GMCT is partnering with the Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek, Hobsons Bay Council, Melbourne Water and a range of local sponsors to host a Planet Ark tree-planting event at the Altona eastern reserve site adjacent to Altona Memorial Park.

With more than 2600 trees to be planted on the day, this event is set to make a significant contribution to this local environment. For more information or to register as volunteer, visit:
