The Kowree Farm Tree Group was host to a number of Conservation Volunteers from around the world last week. The conservation volunteers travelled from the United States of America, China, Taiwan and South Korea. Volunteers were involved in various projects associated with the protection and re-establishment of vegetation for the Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo.
While volunteers were in Edenhope they visited St. Malachy’s school where they were shown the new Bush Tucker Garden and got to sample some of our native foods. Regional Landcare facilitator Bindy Lees worked with them last week and said “The group was a really interesting group of volunteers and they were all very taken by our landscape. They hope to return in five years to see the progress of their efforts.”
The Conservation Volunteers Program team leader Tom Morrison said “The volunteers always love to get out into country areas and meet rural Australians. It gives them a greater understanding of life on the land.” Tom will return to Edenhope in two weeks with another group of Conservation Volunteers assisting in similar environmental projects.
