THE Bass Coast Landcare Network hosted a tour of the best Landcare revegetation project sites throughout the Powlett River Catchment area recently.
A group of 37 farmers came from across Victoria to have a look at the great work that Bass Coast Landcare Network has undertaken with its volunteers over the past 20 years.
“We have planted over 1.5 million indigenous plants in the Powlett Catchment in that time in an effort to protect the waterways and gullies, reduce erosion and improve water quality,” Bass Coast Landcare Network NRM coordinator Dave Bateman said.
Powlett Project Landcare group president Paul Speirs did a fantastic job hosting the tour and talked about the many benefits of planting indigenous plants and being involved in Landcare as a volunteer.
Bass Coast Landcare would like to thank Susan Davies, Prom Country Cheese and John Mumford and Nicky Miller for being great hosts on the tour and allowing visitors to walk through great examples of revegetation.
Landcare is looking for more revegetation project sites.
