Our planting efforts have started brilliantly!
15 May 2016 | by Robyn Benken
This year we have 4000 seedlings all grown from local provenance seed (which was collected and cleaned by our volunteers). Two nurseries have grown the plants for us and Town of Cottesloe have paid for the plants. We started planting on 27th April at Dutch Inn groyne. CCA worked with a small team from Conservation Volunteers Australia planting in an area where Victorian Teatree had been removed, now replacing it with local shrubs and ground covers.
After all our work we shared a picnic lunch which was very kindly donated by Cottesloe IGA (Eric Street). Cottesloe IGA have supported CCA over several years – in fact we were using some great long handled shovels that IGA donated last year. A big thank you to Drew and Phil and all the staff at IGA. And a big thank you to everyone!
