National Tree Day, proudly sponsored by Toyota Australia, was co-founded in 1996 by Planet Ark and Olivia Newton-John. It has now grown in to Australia's largest community tree planting and nature protection event. Planet Ark is asking Australians to help us plant one million new native trees and shrubs across the country.
National Tree Day is a call to action for all Australians to put their hands in the earth and give back to their community. Each year, about 300,000 people volunteer their time to engage in environmental activities that educate individuals about the world around them. It's a day to venture outdoors and get to know your community, and most importantly, to have fun!
Pete Hazell of Mulloon Consulting Contracting & Certifying will travel to Central Queensland to deliver a two day workshop that will provide a practical demonstration of erosion control works to mitigate gully erosion in the Fitzroy Basin (the largest water catchment draining into the Great Barrier Reef). The workshop will also provide an introduction to landscape rehydration methods suitable for use in North Queensland.
Based just east of Wagga Wagga (Ladysmith, Book Book, Big Springs region) the Kyeamba Valley Landcare Group are finishing up a project they have been working on, installing low-cost erosion control structures on many of their members’ properties. TMI’s Cam Wilson was significantly involved in the early stages of this project. To celebrate the completion of the project, they are coming for a visit to Mulloon Creek. They are interested in the range of regenerative farming practices being used on the Mulloon Creek Natural Farm, in particular the landscape rehydration aspects – to tie in with their own erosion control work.

In Australia, groundwater provides more than 20 percent of water used each year. With drought placing ever more pressure on Australian water supplies, Ground Water Awareness Week is part of an important campaign to conserve and maintain fresh water for drinking, irrigation and industrial purposes. https://www.ngwa.org/
