Opportunities

Grow West’s is on its way of meeting its long term vision of rehabilitating 10,000 hectares by working with local landholders, government and corporate organisations.

The Grow West program has generated over $4 million dollars of Government and corporate sponsorship since 2003. These funds have been used to carry out on-ground works on over 1,700 hectares, resulting in significant landscape change across the region.

Grow West projects are continually transforming the landscape – turning rabbit and weed infested wastelands into beautifully treed landscapes; perfect habitat for many native birds and mammals.

To continue this landscape change process we need your support. If you are a landholder or corporate organisation who values land productivity and sustainable resource use, then Grow West wants to partner with you. Grow West can tailor a land management project that meets your needs and aspirations and that helps you attain your environmental goals.
