Help your favourite Darebin environmental or garden project bloom with $5000 of environmental assistance from the Back to Earth Initiative. 

While it’s always best to compost at home, it’s good to know that the compost and mulch processed from Council’s green waste recycling bins, helps farms, gardens and parks bloom.

Right now, the Back to Earth Initiative is giving Darebin residents the opportunity to help a community space do the same, winning $5000 of assistance for your favourite Darebin environmental or garden project in their community environmental and gardening competition.

Perhaps a school could benefit from a composting system or worm farm; a kinder needs a veggie patch; or you’re keen to kick off a community garden. All of these are great ideas for nominations to the competition.

If you have a local project – nominate it now!

The process is easy – if you live in one of these 11 north-west councils in Melbourne (Darebin, Banyule, Moreland, Hume, Nillumbik, Moonee Valley, Melton, Maribyrnong, Brimbank, Hobsons Bay or Wyndham) or know of projects benefiting people in these areas, you can nominate a local project until Sunday 14 September. The community then gets to vote on these projects, helping to support their favourite entry between Tuesday 16 September and Sunday 5 October 2014, with one lucky entry winning the prize valued at $5000.
