Planting the Seed Program Grant

15 October 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 Murrindindi Shire Council.

ERA will help to revegetate a Land for Wildlife site located next to Buxton Primary School in Buxton. Buxton PS staff, students and the local school community have already carried out some revegetation, installed a frog pond and made some fabulous signs for the native vegetation at their Land for Wildlife area, so we will be building on their hard work.

Students from Buxton PS (prep to Year 6) will be taught 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 Buxton PS for their support with this project.

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