Successful grants

FoMC received $49,537.00 from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning for the Biodiversity On-ground Action grant project: Growing Galada Tamboore – conserving threatened species and ecosystems in Thomastown through community action. This will enable weed control, particularly targeting Lobed Needle-grass and Gorse, plus securing the future of Plains Yam Daisy at the site.

We are also acting as the auspice group for a Melbourne Water Community Grant of $21,355.95 to our sub-group Friends of Edgars Creek for the project: Edgars Creek Ecological Vegetation class (EVC) restoration, maintenance and enhancement, which involves fencing, weed control and planting indigenous vegetation. There’s also an additional $1100.00 for administration.
