Local Historian Roslyn Burge has completed a brilliant project on the Greening of Leichhardt. Attached is a detailed report on the shifting patterns in the greening of Leichhardt and domestic gardens represented across the different suburbs in the Leichhardt municipality; comprising of photographs, maps, aerials, oral histories, streetscapes and individual gardens. It considers the shift from growing vegetables for domesticate consumption to ‘lifestyle gardens’ and decorative planting. Also consider the development of community gardens and increased native planting and the amazing work done by locals to build up green areas in their Local Area. The Oral Histories accompanying this research will be made available online in 2012. Keep posted.
