The annual Grow West Community Planting Day was held on Sunday 21 July with 300 people planting 4,000 indigenous plants. A huge thank you to everyone that helped out on the day and to our wonderful volunteer crew and event sponsors.

With their generous financial and in-kind support we’re able to offer this event to the community and thank to your hard work we continued to realise Grow West’s vision of rejuvenating 10,000 hectares of land by creating nature links between the Brisbane Ranges National Park , Lerderderg Gorge State Park and Werribee Gorge State Park .

The event was run in partnership with Port Phillip and Westernport CMA, Victorian National Park Association, Friends of Werribee Gorge and Long Forest Mallee, Bacchus Marsh Lions Club, Victorian Mobile Landcare Group, Moorabool Shire Council, Southern Rural Water, Melbourne Water, Western Water, 15 Trees & G.J. Gardner Homes, Bacchus Marsh Community Bank, Moorabool News. Special thanks to the groups that assisted with planting on the day – Dera Sauda Sacha, Presentation College, Ballan Scouts.

The event was funded through the Greening the West – 1 Million Tree program which is supported by the Australian Government’s 20 Million Trees Program (part of the National Landcare Program) and Melbourne Water Stream Frontage Program.

From all of us at Grow West, a BIG THANK YOU.
