The Garibaldi Landcare Group runs a wide range of activities which have a community capacity building and environmental focus.

We conduct a wide range of environmental activities which focus on maintaining, protecting and enhancing the natural assets in our Landcare Group's region.

We do this through workshops, tree planting days, social events, astute planning and regular working bees on our three project sites at Garibaldi Bridge Reserve, South Durham Bridge Reserve and Hardies Hill Reserve.

The Garibaldi Landcare Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Our Group provides a welcoming environment and encourages people people to join our group.

Currently we have approx. 20 members, most of whom live around the Garibaldi area, from Buninyong through to Grenville (and a few from Ballarat)
We are all volunteers. Our committee, elected at our AGM in November, consists of 5 volunteer members.

We currently look after 3 areas of public land:

-        Hardies Hill Reserve

What we are doing this year?

-        Direct seeding of wildflowers and understorey plants in South Durham Bridge Reserve and Garibaldi Bridge Reserve

How do we work?

-        Structured working bees such as National Tree Day and 1st Sunday of each month – determined by our committee
-        Ongoing project maintenance is carried out by members on an ad hoc basis individually or in small groups.
