Brisbane’s community networks and non-profit organisations are essential in creating a sustainable city. Two community groups include:
- Habitat Brisbane who help restore natural habitats in parks, remnant bushland and waterways
- Growing Communities are a community-based co-operative enterprise that supports school and community gardens and city farms
Community group grants
The Green Heart program offers environment and sustainability grants for community groups.
Community Conservation Assistance is available to individuals and groups to deliver on-ground works within priority biodiversity areas for projects that otherwise would be difficult for groups or individuals to undertake.
To be eligible, groups and individuals must be part of Council's Community Conservation Partnership Program which comprises:
Priority will be given to projects that reduce the impact of invasive weed species and deliver additional benefits. If your project is not directly related to on-ground bushland restoration works, it will not be eligible.
Council offers support to individual, private landholders and community groups to undertake environmental restoration or rehabilitation work that delivers weed management outcomes.
