On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November we held two volunteer planting days as part of our South East Landscape Project, to get some plants in the ground that were long overdue thanks to heavy rain.

Due to such a late start, we needed to get these plants in the ground ASAP. It has been a very odd planting season -with winter and early spring being far too wet to plant in many places. Therefore, these plants were quite late getting in, and we needed lots of vollies from our Extra Hands network to lend a hand.

On Saturday we visited a Landcare individual member's prime lamb property at Colebrook. His son and seven volunteers from across the south of the State worked together to plant 500 trees and shrubs to extend their existing tree break, planted last year as part of our previous landscape-scale project. It started off being a cloudy day, but ended with sunshine, overall a beautiful day to plant.
