Our branches are part of the Greens Grassroots Participatory Democracy model:

Our branches are the real engine-room of the Greens, and the entry-point for members to all our other structures. This is where new members first meet other Greens, talk politics and policy, get involved in local campaigning and fundraising, and find out about what else is going on. Branches are based on local government areas. If you live within the Yarra City Council you will automatically join us, unless you notify the Membership Officer (members@vic.greens.org.au) that you would prefer to be in another branch (e.g. one you were originally in, but then moved house, or another branch is closer to your workplace than your home).

If you live around the following areas you can connect with the other Greens in your local area:

Abbotsford, Burnley, Clifton Hill, Collingwood, Fitzroy, North Carlton, North Fitzroy, Richmond and southern portion of Alphington.

You can contact us via email: yarrabranch@vic.greens.org.au

We share responsiblity for campaiging with Melbourne, and Moreland Greens.
