For over 20 years, Greenweb has helped property owners care for native habitats on their land by doing restoration works, removing weeds, and planting natives to conserve key habitat areas and wildlife corridors
The program aims to preserve bush habitats for the benefit of native flora and fauna. Schools are welcome to join in.
The program offers:
- free garden consultations
- educational talks
- planting days and bush regeneration
- financial assistance for eligible property owners and schools.
To participate, contact Council’s Greenweb Officer on 0414 193 840 to schedule a consultation. We can provide advice about:
- appropriate native plant species for the location
- suitable landscaping projects to encourage native fauna
- controlling invasive weeds
- other environmental or horticultural questions.
You may also be entitled to:
- free native tube plants from Council's Plant Nursery
- bush regeneration bags for weed collection.
You can also improve habitats for native wildlife in your backyard by:
- adding native plants to gardens
- removing invasive weeds
- installing nest boxes for native fauna
- retaining natural features such as logs or rocks.
