Members of the Brighton Community Garden and residents planted fruit trees in a newly fenced verge space on June 5, which they hope will add to the sustainability of the facility.

This year’s theme for World Environment Day, Think.Eat.Save, campaigned to reduce food waste and food loss, and Satterley Property Group’s community development co-ordinator Amy Blundell said it would encourage residents to reduce waste, save money and minimise the impact of food production.

‘World Environment Day is also a day for people from all walks of life to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for themselves and future generations,’ Ms Blundell said.
