Barrabool Hills Landcare Group Rabbit Recipe Book – “FERAL FEAST”
The Barrabool Hills Landcare community just west of Geelong have come up with a unique way to celebrate their 21st birthday and support their annual rabbit management programs.


They have produced a colourful rabbit recipe book, Feral Feast. Featuring twenty one rabbit recipes, superbly illustrated with photographs of the dishes and the Barrabool Hills landscape, together with snippets of history and bespoke cartoons by a renowned local artist.

This is a beautifully presented book, an ideal gift for friends or family, with all profits going towards the efforts of the community to control rabbits.

Books are available from Kaye Rodden, nidgee@reachnet.com.au and cost $25 which includes GST and postage in a padded bag to Australian addresses.

Assistance with weeds
There is a program running in the Inverleigh-Teesdale-Shelford area offering one-on-one assistance to help landholders with the noxious weed, Serrated Tussock (Nasella trichotoma). This is a free advisory program, run by the VSTWP in partnership with local community groups, Golden Plains Shire Council, and the State Government of Victoria. For further information or to organise a free property assessment within the project area, please contact Tim Johnston (VSTWP Extension Officer), M: 0408 534804, E: timjohn4@gmail.com

Funding assistance and grants
Funding is currently available for on-ground projects such as fencing and revegetating along waterways or weed control and protection of grasslands or grassy woodlands. Call us to find out more…
