Funding was provided by the State Governments Communities For Nature grant and we also had welcome support again from Fifteen Trees who were able to provide funds to purchase some plants for our project.

Subject to funding we are hopeful the Lorax Project will continue in 2017.

    Congratulations on a job well done. A wonderful Community workforce with win win outcomes. I have so enjoyed watching my Landcare planted trees growing over the last 12 months.

    I leave them soon regretfully. But I know I’ll call past from time to time to check their progress.

      Good luck.
