04/06/2021

The 2020-2021 Georges River Council Micro Grants Program received significant interest from the community.

Georges River Council Councillor Sandy Grekas explained that the Micro Grants Program offers financial support for individuals, sole traders and small businesses with innovative ideas to improve community wellbeing and achieve social change.

“I am very pleased to announce that the Australian Wildlife Society is the recipient of Council’s latest round of Micro Grants to reinvigorate a street garden in Hurstville”, said Councillor Grekas.

New arrivals to the Georges River community, the Australian Wildlife Society has demonstrated their dedication to supporting community wellbeing. The Micro Grant funds will go towards the purchase of plants to create a native street garden in Hurstville, encouraging local wildlife to the area and providing green space for the whole community to enjoy as well as tackling climate change.

All plants will be purchased from the Bayside Garden Centre, where people with disability are provided with meaningful employment, further supporting Council’s objective to create an inclusive Georges River community.

Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said, “I would like to congratulate the Australian Wildlife Society and thank all organisations who submitted applications,” he said.
