Greener Spaces Better Places brings the power of plants into every Australian’s life. Plants create places that are more appealing to work, play and relax in, and help us feel a sense of place and community within our busy lives. They’re good for our health and wellbeing, cool our cities, reduce air pollutants, regulate water flow, lower carbon emissions, and even increase property value. Yet green space is often ignored when plans are drawn, and concrete poured.

Greener Spaces Better Places is a movement that brings together community, growers, government, business, and everyday people just like you to make our homes, streets, and suburbs the greenest in the world. Greener spaces are better places, so let’s get greening and create greener, better homes, streets, suburbs, and places for all. After all, every green space counts towards a greener Australia. And when everyone gets involved, together we can bring the power of plants into every life.
