Welcome to BBSN 

We are an independent not-for-profit group bridging the gap between talk and action on sustainable living. We focus on helping people reduce their energy use at home and on improving health through gardening and growing food.

Some of the activities we do:

  •     Home sustainability assessments
  •     Gardening group on Wednesday mornings
  •     Re-skilling  Workshops
  •     Sustainable House Day
  •     Food Gardens Day
  •     Community Garden in Yarragon
  •     Film nights
  •     Informative speakers at public meetings
  •     Book discussion group
  •     Seedling production in our greenhouse
  •     Biogas generation with waste from the cafe.
  •     Aquaponics

We're constantly coming up with new ideas & welcome any suggestions!

BBSN started up in 2007 when a group of ordinary people from around the West Gippsland and Baw Baw Shire area were concerned with the environmental situation of the planet and decided to form a sustainability group. The Network has since flourished with over 100 members and hundreds of interested people across our region.

Venue hire - a room all to yourselves with a cafe to boot!

Hire our meeting room for a very reasonable rate of $35 for half day, $60 full day.  Kitchen sink included, with coffee/tea making facilities, 50 stackable chairs & 5 trestle tables.  Also available for hire are data projector, screen, laptop.
