A group of dedicated locals have started a community project to improve the greenery at Melbourne General Cemetery. Sign the petition to show your support for this important project.

The Cemetery is iconic and full of history, and while there are some lovely shady spots, sadly many of its areas have become bare and barren due to a lack of vegetation, maintenance and investment. I’m working with Carlton and Princes Hill locals to transform the Cemetery grounds with more plants and trees, into a lovely green space that everyone can enjoy.

Let’s make Melbourne General Cemetery the best it can be: a lush local walking spot, an iconic monument to those who have come before us, and a peaceful and reflective space in which to visit loved ones. 

If you’d like to get involved in local efforts to green the Melbourne General Cemetery, please sign the petition.

Why isn’t it fixed yet?

Making Sydney Road a more inviting place to ride a bike would improve north-south trips for people who already ride, and hopefully encourage more people to travel by bike.  I was recently asked about the work I’ve done on Sydney Rd, and where this issue was up to. This is...
