The most successful collaborations need not be overly complicated, and generally need elements such as shared goals, mutual respect and teamwork.
Several Landcare groups in Far East Gippsland have developed a terrific collaboration with the Orbost Men’s Shed. The Landcare Groups had a need for someone to build and adjust nest boxes, and the Men’s Shed had the volunteers, equipment and skills to help out. The Landcare Group pays for the materials, and the Men’s Shed build the nest-boxes to order. This is a great example of small communities working together - and the Landcare Group members have shown their appreciation with cake to share at morning tea.
