Green switch for carpark

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

THE much-an­tic­i­pated ur­ban for­est project in Hamil­ton Hill should be com­pleted in time for a pub­lic dis­play day on Satur­day.

The Green­ing Greenslade project is trans­form­ing an as­phalt carpark at the cor­ner of Win­ter­fold Road and Greenslade Street into a shady com­mu­nity space.

Trees, gar­den beds and shrubs are be­ing in­stalled in the carpark as a re­sult of a part­ner­ship be­tween the City of Cock­burn, The For­ever Project and Ur­ban Im­pact Project.

The For­ever Project’s Chris Fer­reira will host demon­stra­tions on Satur­day morn­ing from 10am to 11.30am.

“As I fin­ish the in­stal­la­tion, peo­ple will be able to see how to adapt th­ese prin­ci­ples to their own lit­tle patch of earth, turn­ing it into an invit­ing, re­silient and sus­tain­able place for their own fam­ily, friends and neigh­bours,” Mr Fer­reira said.
