Our Funders, Partners, and Sponsors

We rely on the generosity and commitment of our members, friends, partners and sponsors to support our activities. As with many community-based organisations, a great deal of that support comes in the form of gifts of time and energy, in kind rather than cash. Funding from government and philanthropic bodies allows us to purchase goods and services including tools and plants. Financial donations from individuals are always welcome although at this point in our development we can’t offer tax deductibility … watch this space!

We are particularly grateful to our funding bodies:

Government of Australia – Stronger Communities and other programs
