Successful grant application

In September, the DSRA applied for $12 000 for a Communities Environment Program Grant through Brian Mitchell's office. The funds will be used to remove environmental weeds (Radiata pine and African box thorn) from between 223 and 227 Cambria Drive and the fire break from this easement to the Meredith River. We'll also plant low-flammability natives to screen some properties from the track. We need Council to tick a few things off before we can proceed but hopefully they'll be cooperative and we can get planting in autumn

June long weekend replanting

The June long weekend saw many community members re-planting areas destroyed by the April bushfire. Thanks to all the crowdfunders whose support enabled us to buy not only plants, but native potting mix, tree guards and stakes to help the plants thrive.
