REVEGETATION WORK CONTINUES

Plantings to establish new native vegetation continue on both Crown Land reserves and private properties throughout the Murrindindi Shire.

Last week a volunteer group from the ANZ Bank’s corporate headquarters in Docklands planted out 480 sedges, grasses and shrubs on the Break O Day Reserve in Glenburn.

The ANZ group came prepared for the wet day with their gumboots and suitable clothing.

We later shared a BBQ lunch at the new Alf Miller Park in Glenburn.

We have another nine days of planting already booked for the remainder of the year at locations throughout the Murrindindi Shire.

We were fortunate in receiving a Federal Government ‘Caring for our Country’ grant to purchase the plants, materials and tools for the project.

Since 2010 we have planted over 33,000 plants, many grown locally at Flowerdale from seed collected locally together with some more propagated for us at the Kevin Heinze Garden Centre in Doncaster and the Euroa Arboretum.
