Living Connections garden stories

Since the beginning of 2019 residents in Bronte and Tamarama have joined the Living Connection program to increase native vegetation in their gardens that will support our declining small bird populations.

Birds such as the Superb fairy wren and the New Holland honey eater are now rare sights in our gardens, but with some careful planting of locally endemic species we can turn that around.

This free program provides:

  • Customised expert advice and free plants
  • Tips on how to create a garden sanctuary for small birds, pollinators and lizards
  • An opportunity to contribute to our green corridors so our wildlife can thrive.

Our Living Connections page has full details of the program and how to get involved.

Meet some of our Living Connections locals who are already reaping the benefits of greener gardens.
