In collaboration with Temora Shire Council a Native Plant Giveaway was held on July 29th as part of National Tree Day. Aside from promoting and increasing local involvement in National Tree Day, the aim of the giveaway was to assist in raising awareness of the renewed drive in Landcare related activities in Temora Shire as part of the Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative.
The stall was held in the main street (Hoskins St) of Temora from 9.30 am until 2pm. The giveaway saw 120 native plants given away to very enthusiastic local community members. People were very keen for advice about the right native plants for their particular situations. The stall also provided a great opportunity to connect with the community and to talk about the other Landcare projects in development for the area including the Community Garden and Native Plant Propagation Nursery which is in development at Hillview Park in Temora.
