The Kowree Farm Tree Group ran a Tree Planting course this year to encourage those interested in revegetation works and shelter belts plantings to learn about all aspects involved in tree planting, from site selection, to seed collection & propagation, weed and pest control, fencing, ripping, and the best tools and guards to use for planting seedlings.
Goroke environmental students and their teacher visited the Minimay landbank block on Wednesday the 4th of June to learn about using photo points as an important reference for landscape changes due to management practices. They also learnt how to do a rapid vegetation assessment in Stringybark bushland and will do another one in Buloke woodlands in two months time.
The Goroke cooking students joined them this time and went off on there own bush walk to discuss bush tucker. Afterwards we were supplied with lovely kangaroo burgers and bush salad. The students and their teachers hope to return do to similar activities. Some of the students were involved in the planting of this block and enjoyed seeing how their hard work had was developing.
