Upcoming Projects

Your donations help fund biodiverse tree planting projects that restore Australia’s landscape, sequester carbon, improve soil health, restore water cycles and so much more. In 2023, we will be restoring more than 480 hectares of degraded land and funding several community planting projects. Find out more about these exciting projects below. 

Miyawaki Forests - Perth, WA

Whadjuk Noongar Country

2023 | Funding 5 Pocket forests

We are working with Dr Grey Coupland (Harry Butler Institute) and the local community to develop Miyawaki ‘pocket forests’ across suburbs of Perth that are particularly impacted by the urban heat island effect. These fast-growing, low maintenance native forests help to cool thermal hotspots and provide shade and amenity. They also provide habitat for native fauna, reduce the effects of storm water runoff and help seed rainfall. In 2022, we funded five of these pocket forests in the Perth metropolitan area and a community garden in regional WA. Planting Miyawaki forests offers valuable learning opportunities for school children and allows them to take practical action in the face of climate change. In 2023, we will be funding another 5 of these incredible forests.

Nanda Country

Scheduled 2023 and beyond | 1,350 ha

Eurardy Reserve is located within the Southwest Botanical Province of Western Australia – one of only 36 global biodiversity hotspots. We are working in partnership with Bush Heritage Australia to restore 1,350 hectares of cleared land with a biodiverse mix of native trees, shrubs and ground cover. This project aims to restore the natural ecosystem and protect the land from further degradation and habitat loss. Since 2019, we have planted more than 395,000 seedlings on the Reserve’s red soil areas. Planting will now move towards the trickier yellow sandplain soils. In 2022 we planted a 27-hectare trial area on the sandplain. The results have been positive and our aim is to plant a further 300 hectares in 2023.

Warralakin, WA

Kalaamaya Country

Scheduled 2023 | 185 ha

Located directly adjacent to Chiddarcooping Nature Reserve, this ecologically significant site is part of a larger property owned by Bush Blocks Guardians Inc. (a local not-for-profit conservation group). Previously cleared and used for cropping, the planting site is located within a biodiversity hotspot and is home to several threatened flora and fauna species, including Malleefowl. This project aims to restore native vegetation to the area, creating habitat to support a range of woodland species including Dunnarts, Western Yellow Robins, Brushtail Possums and Pink Cockatoos. Native seed will be collected from the surrounding bush later this year and grown into seedlings at the Noongar Land Enterprise’s Boola Boornap Nursery. These seedlings will be hand-planted during winter 2023.

Banksia Gardens Community Services Sensory & Bush Foods Garden - Broadmeadows, VIC

Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country

Scheduled 2023

We will be supporting Banksia Gardens Community Services to develop a shady corridor and food forest of diverse indigenous, productive trees and plants. The trees will: produce food for the community, mimic a forest ecosystem to ensure long-term soil fertility; create microclimates, and increase biodiversity. Social impacts include reducing vandalism, positively impacting local residents’ mental health, and providing extensive opportunities for volunteering and community connection. As a climate adaptation and mitigation initiative, the planting will cool the Hume urban environment by increasing shade. Engagement and social participation is centred around community events and access to Indigenous bush foods. In addition, the gardens will create safe, calming spaces for children experiencing emotional difficulties associated with trauma.

Regen the Plains - Goulburn Valley, VIC

Yorta Yorta Country

Scheduled 2022 | Funding 500 Trees

Based in the Goulburn Valley region of rural Victoria, this project aims to restore areas of Plains Grassy Woodland – an endangered ecosystem where less than 1% remains uncleared, 68% of which is on private property. Planting activity will happen during an annual event; restoring Country powered by community. Engaging rural and metro communities in volunteer tree planting and the restoration of degraded fringing agricultural land, this project also promotes environmental stewardship and sustainable farming practices. The 2022 planting site covers 1,800m2 in total. The focus of this planting is on enhancing understory and mid-story species around a natural lagoon with recovering remnant grey box woodland.
