Greening the Cemetery

After a year of negotiations, the Greening the Cemetery Project commenced in November 2021. The Cemetery Trust and Princes Hill Community Centre have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in place for a pilot program lasting a year. 
Taking place on one Wednesday per month (to be advised), the project will involve beautifying the allotment given to us under the direction of the Melbourne Cemetery grounds staff and the Friends of the Melbourne General Cemetery steering committee.  
All participants will be required to complete an induction, which we hope to begin in November when the current COVID-19 Roadmap is well underway. In addition to this, guidelines from the public health officer must be adhered to, including; proof of double vaccination, QR code check-in, mask-wearing, and social distancing as required.  

You can email queries to and follow us on Facebook @fomgc. 

If you have already sent an expression of interest to us, or are a new participant, we now need you to sign up by completing the information below. There is no fee to participate.
