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
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.

Wandalgu Farm - Tardun, WA
This working farm is located inland from Geraldton in the mid-west region of WA. The surrounding area is well known for its spectacular wildflower display during the spring. We will be funding approximately 7,000 seedlings to help restore degraded bushland on the property. Previously, stock was allowed to graze through the bushland area on the farm, however this has now been fenced off with hopes to restore the upper story Eucalyptus species and a section of highly saline soil. Eventually, this saltland planting can be intermittently grazed by livestock, encouraging regenerative agriculture practices. The long term vision of this project is to increase native vegetation coverage, reduce soil erosion and increase productivity on the farm by improving the overall health of the landscape.
