BuzzBids - expressions of interest now open

Based in the Upper South East of South Australia, BuzzBids aims to provide funding to landholders to re-establish native vegetation on their properties to contribute to nature conservation and/or habitat for pollinators of lucerne. To be eligibile, sites must be:

Landholders are invited to put in a bid price for undertaking the revegetation. There is no fixed limit on the amount of money a landholder can bid for; however, bidding will be competitive. BuzzBids will determine the value for money of each revegetation plan and bid price, and will allocate funds accordingly.

If you are interested in this new initiative, please call a BuzzBids officer on 0447 037 903 to register your expression of interest. Expressions of interest can also be made by downloading and returning the Expression of Interest form.

Expressions of Interest opened on the 20th November 2018. Landholders are advised to be quick to express interest as over subscription may result in later registrations missing out.

Detailed information about the BuzzBids project can be found in the brochure and information sheets below.
