Planting the Seed Program Grant

1 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 the Port Phillip Bay Fund.

ERA will help to revegetate an area of damaged coastal vegetation along Mentone foreshore.  We will work with students from Kilbreda College, Mentone to 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 Kingston City Council and Kilbreda College for their support with this project.  We’d also like to thank Park Road Timber & Hardware, Cheltenham for their generous donation of safety wear for students!

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