Landcare grant

Great news!  During various stages of Covid restrictions, the Gully Restoration work was completed.  You may have already seen the video Mrs Casey produced, Landcare Grant  so you know how lush the area is looking with the Autumn/Winter rainfall.  This rainfall gives the 300+ indigenous plants a thriving chance to survive the coming warmer months.  It will be great to see how the plants grow and integrate throughout the rocks and in doing so, protect the stormwater pit with a thick embankment of plants.  This style of planting should hold back litter and debris covering and entering the pit. 

FGNPS was granted with just under $1000 from the Woolworths Junior Landcare group to carry out the works, but it should be noted that the In-Kind contribution from donations and volunteer time came in at just under $3500. 

So, thank you must go out to GNPA for their fundraising support, the Burgess family for their generous plant donation and hard work, the Whitten family for their hard work and for Damien van Heeswyk for his labour and machinery work. 

Thank you also to our FGNPS staff for supporting this project from start to finish.  Well done all!
