Beechworth Urban Landcare and Sustainability Group love growing food, planting trees, riding bikes, building nesting boxes, swapping seeds and general hearty goodness. We are a community driven, not for profit group auspiced by Landcare Australia. BULS is run by a volunteer committee, and we’d love for you to join us.
The objectives of the group as expressed in its Local Area Plan are to:
- encourage greater community awareness of Beechworth’s native plants and animals
- promote sustainable practices within Beechworth (eg reduce – re-use – recycle; water tanks, solar power, alternative houses)
- promote organic practices in Beechworth
- develop environmental education programs together with other community groups and schools
- work in partnership with other Beechworth community groups (eg Shire, BNC, CFA).
