Gardens for Wildlife


Nillumbik Gardens for Wildlife (G4W) is a partnership between Nillumbik Shire Council and community members to engage the public in creating habitat gardens for local wildlife.

The program offers a garden visit to local residents from two of our trained volunteer Garden Guides. They will provide encouragement and guidance on how to provide habitat for wildlife through gardening on private property.

If you would like more information about volunteering as a Garden Guide, please visit Nillumbik's Better Impact site.


How does it work?

  • The program is designed by the local community in partnership with Council to meet local needs
  • Joining the program is free
  • The program is open to private residents, schools and eligible community groups (those with a suitable garden space)
  • The program involves two trained Garden Guides visiting your garden for one hour to provide advice and support. 
  • Garden visits are non-judgemental and provide insights/information to assist you to increase habitat and food sources for wildlife in your garden
  • Participants are provided with information on wildlife gardening, and access to the larger network overseen by Gardens for Wildlife Victoria
