Gardens for Wildlife
Pilot period is now closed. Stay tuned for future visits.
We currently are awaiting confirmation of a grant for this project.
Gardens for Wildlife (G4W) is a network of community groups and councils supporting each other to involve local residents, schools, and businesses in caring for the native plants and animals of our communities.
Bellarine Catchment Network are working with Ocean Grove Coastcare group and Barwon Coast Committee of Management to deliver an Ocean Grove specific gardens for wildlife program. This program funded by the City of Greater Geelong will include the assessment of local resident's properties for indigenous flora and fauna values. From the garden visit we suggest changes that can your garden more wildlife friendly.
