Landcare opens to the community
THEY’RE an organisation that’s been in the community since 1998 and Whitsunday Catchment Landcare has been doing what they can do to help ever since.
Landcare held their Community Nursery Open Day and Plant Sale on Saturday with members of the community getting a chance to purchase locally grown plants and the opportunity to trade in their weeds for a free native plant.
“We’re trying to do it on an annual basis from now on. It raises money for our our projects,” Whitsunday Catchment Landcare co-ordinator Cath Campbell said.
“Most of our money either comes from either the State Government, Federal Government or through contract work we do. This money is what we can use on our own Landcare projects.”
All of the plants available on the day were grown from local seed and adapted to the local area.
Landcare also welcomes any new volunteers with programs on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
