What is Landcare Fire Recovery?

Upper Goulburn Landcare Network
Since the devastating Black Saturday bushfires of Feb 2009, the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network has been working with landholders and local communities in the Murrindindi and Mitchell Shires to rebuild and rehabilitate the local environment on private property.
This blog presents some of the stories.

ANZ Risk Department MEGA WEEK Day 2

31st August 2010 .

The Banking world's financial year ends this week and all unused volunteers days cannot be carried into the next year. This has created our ANZ Risk Department Mega Week. We have committed to finding work for 40 volunteers for each day for a week. This also includes providing morning tea and lunch in the field (catering for a wide range of dietary needs), providing mobile toilet facilities and ensuring coach access to all sites.

Those Mercellin boys must have had other things on their minds. But how many did Sister Margret heel in?
