Cassinia Environmental is the Victorian Government’s delivery partner for the private land stream of BushBank. 

Our volunteer committee meet once a month via zoom, and occasionally invite a guest speaker to present on topics that may be of interest to our members.


In May we were delighted to meet Krista Patterson-Majoor, BushBank Program Manager at Cassinia Environmental. Krista provided an overview of the BushBank Program with a focus on the Private Land Stream. It’s an ambitious program aiming to restore 20,000 hectares of land and protect these properties with a Trust for Nature conservation covenant.


We are sharing Krista’s presentation here which provides detail on:

  • What land is eligible
  • Are there priority areas
  • What can projects include
  • What are the restoration standards
  • How are projects selected
  • Agreements, funding models and incentives
  • Progress so far
  • How to express interest


Properties that already have a covenant in place are eligible but check with the BushBank team about the requirements for “new” revegetation versus supplementary planting or facilitating natural regeneration.


If this is a presentation you would be interested in hearing in future, please let us know.
