Bushcare

Waratah Mills Bushcare SiteBushcare activities in the GreenWay are helping to re-establish the plants that would have grown in the GreenWay prior to the area being cleared for European settlement.

The Bushcare program aims to improve the biodiversity, amenity and habitat value of the GreenWay along the entire length of the GreenWay corridor, linking the natural environments of the Cooks River and Iron Cove.

There are currently nine Bushcare Sites in the GreenWay, managed by local community bushcare groups and supported by local Councils.

Working bees

Monthly bushcare working bees are held on Sunday mornings. Download the Bushcare Working Bee Calendar 2017or check out the Events Calendar for details.

Also see the calendar of events for the Cooks River Mudcrabs and event diary for the Inner West Environment Group.

No experience is necessary and supervision and tools are provided.  Visit our Join a Bushcare group page for more information.

Creating a flora and fauna corridor

This work is crucial to the conservation of plants and animals in Sydney’s inner west, as the GreenWay corridor provides a vital green link from north to south through this highly urbanised area.

The Revegetation & Bushcare Plan has been developed as part of the GreenWay Sustainability Project in partnership with Council and community stakeholders to confirm bushcare objectives and approach and guide future work in the corridor. 

Committed residents of the GreenWay and members of the Inner West Environment Group have been establishing pockets of new native vegetation in Bushcare sites within the GreenWay since 2000. The Cooks River Mudcrabs are another active group of eco volunteers.  Find out more about becoming a bushcare volunteer and joining a bushcare group.

Welcome to the GreenWay website!

 The GreenWay is an urban green corridor in Sydney's Inner West. It is a bush corridor and a hub for community arts and groups, bushcare, walking and cycling. The GreenWay Community is maintaining a campaign to build an off-road shared path from the Cooks River to Iron Cove.  This trail was to be built as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension but was deferred by the state government. As an interim measure we have marked out an alternative route to help people travel along the corridor.  

This website is a portal to all GreenWay related activities in the catchment. Get involved in the site - register and add community events, send us resource materials, and add comments.  With your feedback we will continue to improve and evolve this site - let us know what you think!
