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.

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.
