The Well Waters project provides $150,000 in rain tank & raingarden rebates, and hosts community workbees to improve Elster Creek for water, plants, animals and people.
This latest EcoCentre project provides the community and environment supporters of the Elster Creek catchment area with a chance to get rebates on the installation of rain tanks and waterwise gardens for their homes, businesses and local schools. The Well Waters project aims to mitigate the effects of Elster Creek floods, while improving habitat for over 200 local wildlife species, and bringing the community closer together.
Not eligible for a rebate, but still want to help the community and the environment? No worries! You can still volunteer in some of the super fun activities and donate your earned credits to anyone who is participating.
We are especially looking for individual households to apply for a rebate. To check your eligibility, volunteering opportunities and other information, visit www.wellwatersworkbees.
