Planted Life shows our support to the organisations, events, charities and campaigns that speak the same language as us. Many of them support a meat-free lifestyle, even if momentary or occasional. These like-minded entities promote an ethical and mindful approach to food, nutrition, consumption and our environment. Some are local to Melbourne; others are part of the wider Australian & worldwide community.
We are about identifying the people who have determination, passion and drive to promote a message that will benefit all creatures great or small – not just we humans, but all life on our planet. If you would like us to promote your meat-free, ethical or like-minded organisation (or one that you know) on this page, we encourage you to email us.

Meat Free Week
Eat less, care more, feel good. Are you up for the challenge?
Meat Free Week happens in March of each year and is designed to get you thinking and talking about meat – how much you eat, where it comes from and what it’s doing to your health and to the health of the planet. Plus it raises much needed funds for Bowel Cancer Australia.
So whether you are looking to reduce your meat intake or already live a meat free lifestyle, this week is about raising awareness to the broader community about the state of our meat production and consumption. To learn more about this very important week in March and what you can do to get involved, not to mention what you can eat visit www.meatfreeweek.org

The name ‘Landcare’ evolved in Victoria through an initiative of Joan Kirner, (then Minister for Conservation, Forests and Lands) and Heather Mitchell, (then President of the Victorian Farmers Federation). With the generous support of community members, farmers and departmental officers, Heather Mitchell and Joan Kirner were able to launch ‘Landcare’ in a small town in central Victoria in November 1986.
What has transpired since is remarkable; Landcare groups have formed all across Australia, and in over 20 countries around the world. The cornerstones of Landcare are being community owned and driven, being bi-partisan in nature, and encouraging integrated management of environmental assets, including productive farmland and a sustainable approach to private land management.
