Wyndham City is currently trialling a nature strip planter box program which encourages the local community to establish planter box gardens on nature strips to help promote social and community connections and knowledge exchange.
The planter box initiative was a concept suggested from Wyndham residents who were wanting to expand on their home gardens.
The initiative which current has 42 households taking part, comes with many community benefits including providing an extra growing space for those with smaller blocks, promoting healthy eating, bringing neighbourhoods together and beautifying unprogrammed space.
The trial will be assessed by several criteria to determine whether the program becomes a Council process in the future.
