About our program
Gardens for Wildlife Ballarat is working towards being an affiliated member of Gardens for Wildlife Victoria. This state-wide network of community groups and local government partnerships is active in a growing number of municipalities across Victoria. Gardens for Wildlife Ballarat is currently a pilot program run entirely by volunteers and we are looking for partner organisation/s to support our volunteers and expand our program.
Partner organisations would assist and help to develop our volunteer program, offer some paid facilitator hours to recruit, support and train our volunteers, develop connections with other organisations, assist in promotion at community events, apply for grants, help align our program with various local and statewide strategies and celebrate, monitor and share in our progress.
The Gardens for Wildlife Victoria network supports collaboration, connections and well-being alongside environmental objectives. The program celebrates the significant role of individuals and their gardens that contributes to conservation and being connected socially.
