Become a Gardens for Wildlife Volunteer Guide

Are you passionate about Yarra’s local wildlife and want to inspire our community to improve biodiversity and habitat in their backyards, courtyards and balcony gardens?

Don’t miss this rewarding opportunity to become a Gardens for Wildlife Garden Guide for the City of Yarra.

Gardens for Wildlife (G4W) is an exciting program supporting the community to provide an area of habitat or food sources in their garden to promote and support local wildlife.

The initiative relies on the help of volunteer Garden Guides, who visit the gardens of new members and provide recommendations, examples and ideas to inspire residents to value local biodiversity and conserve indigenous flora and fauna.

Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, develop your skills, connect to nature and share your knowledge with the community. As a volunteer you will also be provided with opportunities to shape the program, learn, mentor, network and collaborate through a series of workshops and social events focused on habitat gardening and caring for wildlife in backyards.

Greening the Cemetery
Expressions of interest
: Register HERE
As you may know, The Princes Hill Community Centre is located near the Melbourne General Cemetery (MGC);  a place of local, state, and national importance. The 106 acre cemetery, established in 1852  was originally “designed as a public park, with curved pathways, trees and shrubs…”.

During Covid 19 lockdown restrictions, many people spent their walks exploring the Melbourne Cemetery and became aware that it represents a significant open space, with great potential as a haven for flora and fauna, as well as people.

Our call out for expressions of interest in ‘Greening the Cemetery’ was very well-received. We now have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in place with the Cemetery Trust and an Operations Manual. Currently. working bees take place on the last Friday of every month from about 10am – 12noon.
