Keen to attract more native flora and fauna to your garden? Then listen up!

An initiative of our 2019 Sustainability Champions program, Gardens for Wildlife Victoria is starting up in Moonee Valley and is on the lookout for volunteers interested in learning more about backyard biodiversity.

Gardens for Wildlife is a network of community groups and local government partnerships active in more than 25 municipalities across Victoria.
Participants support each other to involve residents, schools and businesses to join them in caring for the native plants and animals of our communities

In Moonee Valley, the aim is to establish a local group of volunteers who will work together to make their neighbourhoods places that provide suitable habitats for encouraging and nurturing locally indigenous or native wildlife in private gardens. 

The program will provide garden assessments from trained volunteers, along with the skills and resources to encourage residents to set an area aside in their garden for planting locallly indigenous or selected Australian native plants. 

The best thing is, garden size isn’t important. Whether it is a suburban backyard, school or community garden, rooftop, or balcony, everyone can help promote biodiversity.  

By planting locally indigenous or selected Australian native plants, gardens can be designed to attract more native flora and fauna and create a vibrant and healthy neighbourhoods for generations to come.
