supporting our community
As a family business, Bisinella Developments has always been closely connected to our local community in Lara and the Geelong region.
We have undertaken many projects for the benefit of the community and have a large portfolio of community donations and sponsorships.
At Bisinella Developments, investing in community development is as much a part of our business as investing in residential and industrial development, growth and jobs.
Lara Food and Wine Festival
The Bisinella family donates use of historic Pirra Homestead for the Lara Food and Wine Festival, the largest annual major event in the northern Geelong region.
Held each March, the festival is run by a volunteer committee to showcase Lara and surrounds, boost tourism and build pride in the local community.
As the 2016 festival has received no Council funding, Bisinella Developments has agreed to provide additional financial support to ensure that this important community event can continue.
The festival will be held.. More..
