Planting the Seed Program Grant

14 July 2023

Eco Warriors Australia is excited to announce that, in partnership with Ecology and Restoration Australia, we have received a grant for the Planting the Seed program from Hepburn Shire Council.

ERA will help to revegetate an area of damaged roadside vegetation along Bullarto South Road, about halfway between Daylesford and Trentham.  Bullarto South Primary School is a small school so we will be working with the whole school, with students from prep to Year 6. We will teach students how to collect native plant cuttings/seeds, propagate and care for seedlings, use native plants to revegetate sites and maintain their site post-revegetation. Students will use simple data collection tools to monitor revegetation success.

A big thanks to Hepburn Shire Council, Bullarto South PS and Wombat Native Plants for their support with this project.

Please see our FAQ or contact us if your school would like to get involved.
