We believe that everyone can contribute to making their community a better place to live. Through our Adopt A Spot project, individuals, families, schools, businesses and community organisations can select an area of their choice to maintain.
The objective is to inspire people to take pride in their surroundings and take greater responsibility for the local environment. By focusing on one "Spot" at a time, we aim to improve the cleanliness and biodiversity of our streets and neighbourhoods, make better use of unused spaces, and foster better-connected communities.
First, choose a "Spot" you feel passionate about. Your Spot could be anything from a scenic mile of beach that is always littered with litter to an overgrown alleyway, a local park in need of some TLC, or even your own street!
Your adopted Spot should be safe, accessible and within a reasonable distance from where you reside. Please consider the need for landowner's permission on privately owned land, if applicable.
Decide what activities you want to undertake in your Spot. Adopt A Spot groups engage in a wide range of activities, from planting for biodiversity, installing and maintaining wildlife homes, growing vegetables, to conducting weekly or monthly litter picks. You will need to consider which activities are best suited to your group and your Spot.
