Wildcare Alice Springs is a not for profit wildlife care and rescue organisation in the Northern Territory, which provides a support network for carers of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife, with the end result being to return them to the wild in the area they came from.
The organisation endeavours to:
Olive Pink Botanic Gardens is a popular destination for visitors to Alice Springs and the Local Community attracting over 45 000 visitors per year. OPBC hosts an increasing number of events including the desertSMART EcoFair, film festivals, concerts, conferences, weddings and functions. The responsibility to act as a demonstration to the local community and visitor’s in best practice waste management is core to OPBC’s sustainable vision.
The Alice Springs Community Gardens Network Compost Education project will work with members and the broader community (including schools, workplaces and businesses) to develop and test at least two central composting systems located at urban Community Garden sites. To further enhance the education component, a series of on-site training sessions, interpretative signage and website materials will also be developed.
