Wimmera to be 13,000 trees greener come Monday
Volunteers will flock to Nhill this weekend for the 22nd annual Project Hindmarsh planting weekend.

The Nhill Showgrounds will come alive as the central base for the weekend, being the base from which 13,000 trees will be planted across three sites.

One planting site is west of Nhill and is a Box/Gum/Buloke woodland, with a spread of native grasses.

Between Gerang Gerung and Glenlee, a remnant Yellow Gum and Mallee woodland adjacent to a cleared area will be planted with a suite of rare and endangered species.

The third site for the weekend is north of Nhill and is a small failed direct seeding site, which will be replanted.

In return for their efforts during the day, on Saturday night volunteers will be treated to a meal catered for by Nhill’s Karen community.

Project Hindmarsh started in 1998 and is the Hindmarsh Landcare Network’s most successful and well-known program. These weekends are the longest-running event of its kind in Australia.
