Fund My Neighbourhood program

Ashleigh Coombs - Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Do you have a cracking idea to help your local environment or special nature place?

Need some help to get it happening?

Funding opportunities are rare for local environmental projects, so we are keen for you to make the most of the recently announced Fund My Neighbourhood program.

While much of the publicity for the program has focused on sporting clubrooms and playgrounds, there's nothing to stop the money going towards protecting or enhancing your little pocket of this beautiful planet we call home.

It could be rehabilitating a local patch of bush, creating a rain garden or butterfly garden, or planting a communal orchard.

If you are an individual or a group who has an environmental idea to improve your neighbourhood but is not sure how or where to begin, come to a special information session:

WHEN: Wednesday 23 August, 2017 from 4:30pm - 5.30pm
WHERE: The Joinery, 111 Franklin St Adelaide
REGISTER NOW!
And if you want to partner with us on a project, give Conservation SA's Kathryn Warhurst a call on 8223 5155.

Fund My Neighbourhood is different from a usual grant funding round - it's a participatory budgeting program that gives South Australians the power to nominate and vote for the projects they like the best.

Environment & Sustainability is one of six eligible categories — but there are lots of tricks and potential traps that can dramatically increase or decrease the chance of your project being chosen.

So we've invited Gail Fairlamb, one of the creators of the program, along on Wednesday to explain how you can give yourself or your group the best chance for success.

We hope to see you Wednesday at 4.30pm. Otherwise, give Kathryn a call to see if we can help you turn your dream project into reality.

All the best
Craig and the Conservation SA team
