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.

Wet Feet

Davis Property. Glenburn.
The project for the day was to plant and guard 300 understorey plants in the bare patches amongst the manna gums along the Yea River at the bottom of Gail's property. The ground was very muddy on the river flats . Luckily Gail had a good supply of spare gum boots and coats but there were some very wet feet at the end of the day . A BBQ lunch was enjoyed around the huge family table, it seated 20 people! The warm fire was also very appreciated by my cold feet.
