We’re developing an edible tree planting proposal for the Kensington Stock Route, which runs from Racecourse Road to the Maribyrnong River, as part of the implementation of the Urban Forest Strategy 2012-2032 (PDF 5.4MB). The Stock Route provides a unique location in the city to introduce edible trees, increase species diversity and improve local food production.

We aim to establish a long term planting plan for the Kensington Stock Route in collaboration with the local community. This project will introduce a very gradual transformation of the landscape, only planting edible trees when existing trees require replacement. The planting plan will seek to establish character zones and a species list to be used as a guide into the future.

We want to hear from the local community and users of the space. Are edible trees something you would like to have along the Stock Route? If so, what types of edible trees would you like? We want to ensure we’re planting the types of trees that you would like to see and eat!
