Based on the six-day FarmPlan21 course, the course has been condensed to a three-day course. It provides an opportunity for landholders to develop a property plan based on ecological and economic factors.
Recently over 20 landowners and landcare support staff from West Gippsland participated in a 9 week Master Tree Growers program. The program proved to be an amazing opportunity for all participants to increase their knowledge, engage with other like-minded people and develop ideas and actions for their own properties.
The second Phillip Island Landcare Group community tree planting event for 2018 is upon us. Following on from the success of the first tree planting event we encourage you to join us at this exciting event. If your interested in planting trees, meeting new people and sharing a well earned lunch then this event is for you.
Story from Isabel Rooks Year 9 Wonthaggi Secondary College.
The best part, for me, about helping at the Bunny Boiler Landcare dinner is the contented feeling I got when helping out with a cause that is greater than oneself.
The other best part was meeting the many wonderful people out there who are happy to help and do their part for the environment. Some of these people were a group of my friends and we became the Bunny Helpers for the night. Our jobs varied, covering the preparation, cashiers, waitresses and raffle masters. We all took up the roles gladly and wore our little pink bunny rabbit ears with pride.
The Bunny Boiler is an event held every year, this time at the North Pier Hotel.

Story contributed by Libby Lambert, Springbank, Bena Victoria.
In 2000, we purchased a 32 ha. valley of ‘blue gum country’ at the top of the Powlett River catchment, in South Gippsland. The native floral biodiversity at that time existed of six mature eucalypts, some declining mature blackwoods, silver wattles, and a few native grasses along the tracks. The fauna consisted of quails, magpies, kookaburras, some migratory birds, a few reptiles and frogs, the Giant Gippsland worms on south and east facing slopes, burrowing crayfish, loads of eels in the dams, foxes and one hare. The Gippsland forest had been cleared in the late 1800’s and the land used for dairy farming then later as grazing for young heifers. In 2000, it had few weeds - blackberries, thistles, some ragwort and boxthorn in a steep gully, as well as some mature pine trees, weeping willows and five beautiful oak trees around the original house site. There was ample water in the dams with one large dam shown on the maps as ‘permanent water’.

On the last weekend in April, Gippsland Intrepid Landcare held their first ever Landcare retreat down at Sandy Point. Gippsland Intrepid Landcare are a volunteer based organisation and believe that we are all lucky to live within such a precious and beautiful region.
Gippsland Intrepid Landcare aims to connect young people (aged 18 to 35) to the incredible Gippsland environment, through real environmental projects and adventure. The weekend gave the opportunity for 23 young and inspiring individuals from all over Gippsland to get their hands dirty and make their ideas a reality.
