Rae Jeffers from the Yelta Landcare Group Inc in Mildura has worked diligently again this year to organise the planting of 480 trees on the behalf of Di and Brad Stanbrook of G.J. Gardner Mildura.
The trees went across 4 sites in the district: 2 schools, at a park under a bridge and a roadside reserve.
At Red Cliff’s Secondary College, 75 trees were planted on the school grounds. The students and teachers spent a morning planting and watering in the trees. They have made a commitment to keep water up to the trees for the coming summer season and hope to be sitting under their shade in years to come.
