Community groups

Brisbane’s community networks, non-profit organisations and volunteers are helping us create a cleaner, greener and more sustainable Brisbane. Groups and individuals may be eligible for community grants or Community Conservation Assistance. Find out how you can help your local community.



Community gardens and city farms

Brisbane City Council is part of a growing network of community gardens and city farms around Australia, providing residents with places to meet and grow healthy food in their neighbourhoods.

Habitat Brisbane

The Habitat Brisbane program helps community groups restore natural habitats in parks, remnant bushland, wetlands and along waterways. View the groups in or near your suburb of Brisbane.


Environment and sustainability grants

Brisbane City Council's Lord Mayor's Community Sustainability and Environmental Grants program provides funding to groups and individuals across Brisbane to carry out projects that improve Brisbane's natural environment and sustainability.


Volunteer at the environment centres

Share your passion for Brisbane's natural environment, learn about the reserves around you and give back to your community by volunteering at one of Brisbane City Council's environment centres.


Creek Catchments program

Council's Creek Catchments program has officers based across Brisbane who work with community catchment groups to protect and restore catchments.


Community Conservation Assistance

Community Conservation Assistance (CCA) is available to individuals and groups to deliver on-ground works within priority biodiversity areas for projects that otherwise would be difficult for community groups to undertake.
