On Tuesday 19th of June, members from across three of the Community Partnership Projects met as part of the evaluation of the project. The Bushfire recovery projects were initiated by the Taskforce following the Black Saturday fires. The groups use the community-led blackberry approach to engagement. The projects used incentive money and voluntary blackberry management agreements to work with land owners affected by the fires.
A complete evaluation report will be coming out shortly.
