Gardiner Foundation grants announced

Thirty-four community projects will share $110,000 in the latest round of the Gardiner Foundation Working in Dairy Communities program. Since its inception, more than $1.1 million has been donated to 240 projects across Victorian dairy communities.

Projects funded in this round range from shade sails to hall repairs, buying wetland plants, installing signage along a walking track and even a fence to keep the cows out!

FRRR’s CEO, Alexandra Gartmann, commented that while the amounts are small, they can be catalytic in their impacts. “This is an investment in the ongoing development of these communities.”

Congratulations to each of these community projects.
