Where did all these plants come from ?

Where did all the trees we have been planting come from ?
Actually most of what we have been planting are not trees but are understorey plants .
Shrubs , low bushes , ground covers , herbs and grasses. ( nothing too fire prone )

Our plants had been grown from locally collected seed by volunteer groups.

Euroa Arboretum grew 9,000 . Thanks to Sam Strong , Rob Hall and their volunteer workers

Tasmanian Understorey Network volunteers grew 3000 plants and Janet & Justus travelled to TAS to thank the growers and collect the plants . Not much happens in Hobart on a Sunday and the local press & TV reporters covered the story of plants going to Vic for Bushfire Victims.
I was even interviewed by Lindy Burns on 774 Drivetime about the project! We collected plants from Devenport , Launceston and Hobart and met some beaut people along the way.

Rotary Clubs in Melbourne grew 10,000 plants at the Kevin Heinze Centre .
What great effort by many people .
