Greening the Cemetery
Expressions of interest
: Register HERE
As you may know, The Princes Hill Community Centre is located near the Melbourne General Cemetery (MGC);  a place of local, state, and national importance. The 106 acre cemetery, established in 1852  was originally “designed as a public park, with curved pathways, trees and shrubs…”.

During Covid 19 lockdown restrictions, many people spent their walks exploring the Melbourne Cemetery and became aware that it represents a significant open space, with great potential as a haven for flora and fauna, as well as people.

Our call out for expressions of interest in ‘Greening the Cemetery’ was very well-received. We now have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in place with the Cemetery Trust and an Operations Manual. Currently. working bees take place on the last Friday of every month from about 10am – 12noon.
