Residents of Wilga Street near Dulwich Hill Station have created fantastic food gardens along their street, where there was once an expanse of concrete footpath. The vegetable beds are watered by diverted stormwater and the produce is shared. This is very much in keeping with the GreenWay vision develop a network of green streets within the GreenWay catchment. You can watch a video about Wilga Street and if you want vote for them in Origin Energy's Sustainability Drive competition.
