Munash Organics are one of those inspiring heart-based companies, who truly walk the talk when it comes to preserving nature.
Over the past five years, the Central Victorian based boutique soil mineralisation business has been supporting our quest to keep our planet green. To date they have enabled plantings of 630 native trees and plants into areas that really need it.
This year, 200 trees were planted by Nicole Howie and the Northern Bendigo Landcare Group into the Bendigo area, on the traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung and the Taungurung Peoples of the Kulin Nation.
We take delight in the fact that the variety of trees planted in this region by Landcare via the generosity of Munash Organics, were chosen specifically to help protect the endangered Bush-Stone Curlew. A nocturnal bird, its plumage is cleverly coloured to camouflage with tree leaf litter on the ground.
Munash Organics focus on soil conservation via their outdoor & indoor gardening range of organics, along with their agriculture arm for farming, recreation reserves etc, and understand the importance of regenerative methods when it comes to replenishing what we take from our earth. Trees of course play a huge role in replacing carbon to our soils. Carbon sequestration is possible via a few methods, including improving soil microbial diversity and organic input from tree planting.
“This year we enjoyed generous support from Fifteen Trees and Munash Organics to the tune of 200 trees. We planted these trees at the Bendigo Creek Streamside Reserve with help from Year 10 students from Crusoe Secondary College. The group were looking for an outdoor experience and this request tied in perfectly with tree planting season.
All in all, we have a wonderful planting season with lovely damp conditions and although it was a challenging time logistically, we got there in the end!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this planting.“
