It's that time of year where we do, what we do best. Planting! Check out the dates scheduled for our planting days and be sure to put them in your diary and join us in revegetating the Bass Coast and getting our hands dirty.
Please be sure to check the schedule regulary as dates may vary depending on weather forecasts.
Ten years is a long time, but that’s how long the Bass Coast Landcare Network and Holden have been partnering to revegetate areas in and around the Bass River including the 1950s partially cleared grazing site that has become a Holden icon and at 880hectares - one of the largest privately owned patches of remnant vegetation; the Lang Lang Proving Ground.
Over that time the Network, supporting 10 local Landcare groups - with a combined membership of over 800 families - has focused on works that have improved the quality of water in the Bass River and the establishment of vegetation corridors between the proving ground and other native vegetation remnants. More than 130,000 indigenous plants have been established across 50 properties, with seed gathered from the proving ground being used to direct seed and to propagate tube stock.

The West Gippsland Healthy Soils - Sustainable Farms project assists farmers to access and make sense of the latest science, identify soil constraints within their production system, implement best practice and trial innovative approaches to manage these constraints. As a part of the project the West Gippsland CMA will support farmers to conduct planning across Gippsland over the next 5 years ” please click here to download an expression of interest form to register.
