Urban biodiversity is becoming increasingly important, as research shows that cities play a vital role in biodiversity conservation and management. Protecting and enhancing biodiversity also supports the health and wellbeing of communities and can contribute to effective climate change adaptation actions.

Education

Our schools and ELC programs allow students to connect to their local environment, especially Port Phillip Bay, St Kilda Botanical Gardens and Aboriginal Cultures and history. Students will be empowered to take sustainability action within their school, community and at home.

Our programs and excursions are linked to outcomes from VEYLDF, Victorian Curriculum and ResourceSmart Schools. 

Community Garden

Garden Working Bees & harvest meal: Fridays 10am - 2pm

The EcoCentre garden is a shared community garden featuring Aboriginal cultural plants, a rain garden, heritage vegetables, a propagation area, heritage fruit trees and an organic waste composting system for the local neighbourhood. The produce is shared by those who help to grow it. It is also an educational garden with a strong focus on sustainable gardening practices.

Boon Wurrung Foundation Logo The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
