Planting season for 2012 is finished.

This is just one of the seedlings we have planted in the bushland during June and July 2012. We had more than 1,100 seedlings this year, which took four sessions and 80 person-hours to put them in the ground. These were of 18 species – all of which were propagated and grown by our group members.

The goal with all of this planting is to fill in the open and degraded areas of the bushland and restore it to a condition that is useful to the wildlife and stops (or at least slows down) the weeds. Our plantings from previous years have grown well and give an insight to the future of this year’s plants.

With some good rains over the next few months these plants will be off to a good start and we look forward to seeing them grow up to take their place in the bushland.
