Nillumbik Gardens for Wildlife (G4W) is a collaboration between Nillumbik Shire Council and community members to engage the public in creating habitat gardens for local wildlife.
The program offers a garden visit to local residents from two of our trained volunteer Garden Guides. They will provide encouragement and guidance on how to provide habitat for wildlife through gardening on private property.
Are you passionate about local wildlife and connecting people to nature?
