Sixth of the best

SIXTH AVENUE in Bayswater is officially the most sustainable street in the city.

Edible verge gardens and superb up-cycling and recycling helped Sixth Avenue residents win the council’s inaugural Sustainable Street Awards this week.

On Wednesday, September 11, Bayswater mayor Dan Bull presented the winning residents with a sign for the street and $500 towards a sustainability project.

“Neighbours along Sixth Avenue have come together to organise sustainability initiatives for their street including composting and a verge garden tour,” he said.

“After gaining permission from the owner of an empty patch of land on their street, Sixth Avenue residents transformed an unused space into a small native park open to everyone to enjoy. The title of most sustainable street is certainly well deserved.”
