Wilderland is an educational charity organisation, with a limited budget to work with. After the 2017 fires there is still a huge amount of reconstruction to work on.
Regeneration of land and buildings.
Roads repairs for ourselves and neighbours.
Rebuilding the old bridge.
Developing local community garden.
Restoring our bee hives and hen homes.
Creating events spaces. Think educational workshops, shared gardens, wellness retreats, paddock-to-plate experience days and community planting events so you can really get your hands dirty, learn skills and make a difference.
You can support us by donating money, resources, time or experience. Or get involved with our projects!

Donation to the Wilderland Charitable Trust
Without donations from friends and well-wishers over the years following the catastrophic fires, Wilderland would not exist. The world needs community now more than ever, and it is through your continued love and support that we can restore our community and plan for a better future for everyone!
Any donations received go directly to our sustainability and community projects.

Donating resources and materials
We are working towards becoming 100% renewables powered and are built mainly using recycled, up-cycled and sustainable materials.
Please contact us if you have any building materials, appliances, furniture or tools you would like to donate or share with us that might help towards building our shared community space and support our sustainability projects.
We are actively recruiting dedicated long-term participants in the areas such as organic gardening and permaculture, building and maintenance, energy efficiency and renewables, and marketing and events. Head to our Volunteer page to learn more.
We are constantly looking for like-minded individuals and organisations who want to partner with us to help educate, bring the community together, and address environmental issues. We have 64 hectares of land and are in the beginning stages of rebuilding our community.
We need support, expertise and resources in areas such as building and maintenance, organic gardening and permaculture, energy efficiency and renewables, marketing and communications and fundraising.
