Launch of Landcare's Helping Hands

Land for Wildlife (LFW) property owners are into conservation and revegetation but they are often alone in their endeavours. Once a planting is finished they can be overwhelmed by maintenance and weed problems. Landcare's helping hands aims to help landowners with projects that are too big for the individual to handle and too small for contractors. We also advise on weed management, suggest contractors and assist with grants.

Today, on our first outing, we successfully released dozens of plants from the bondage of tight tree guards. We have been contacted by six properties in 2 months so it looks like there is plenty of need.
