NEWS & EVENTS (Calendar and Blog)
We are looking to create a working group for the 'Seed to Tree' Project and have organised a free workshop on Sunday 14 November to get us all started. The 'Seed to Tree' project aims to develop an ongoing seed collection and propagation resource for revegetation of native flora in our area.
Experts Dan Frost and Tanya Loos from Seeding Victoria will run the interactive workshop exclusively for Ashbourne Landcare Group and will cover areas such as plant identification, seed collection, storage, propagation, germination testing and direct seeding plus ethics and permits.
The venue and time are still to be confirmed but it will be local. Spaces are limited so please let us know if you'd like to attend by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 5 November.
For decades, those involved in Landcare have testified to a greater sense of self, both physically and mentally, resulting from an enhanced link with their local community and environment. This, in turn, has boosted community wellbeing and it has long been the desire of the Landcare movement to quantify the significance of these benefits.
Now, newly published findings by KPMG Australia in partnership with Landcare Australia, indicate Landcare volunteers enjoy substantial improvements to their mental and physical wellbeing – and a significant decrease to their healthcare costs.
