Alumni from Bridging the Gap’s Crossing Point Leader’s Academy (CPLA), their friends and families joined staff and relatives from
Bridging the Gap and Ngulla Community Nursery to plant over 1200 trees for National Tree Day on Sunday 29th July at the nursery site in Born Road, Casuarina, Western Australia.
Five species were installed in Ngulla’s eastern paddock as part of the regeneration of our “living classroom”, with the area to be used by students from BTGs registered training office who are studying Horticulture and Conservation & Land Management.¬† The site will be a laboratory for plant monitoring, animal and insect studies and is part of the overall restoration of natural area.¬† Species planted were all endemic to the area and include Acacia Lasiocarpa, Kunzea Recurva, Banksia Illicifolia, Tempeltonia Retusa and Melaleuca Raphiophylla.¬† These plants will provide shelter, habitat and food to our resident Bandicoot, parrots, hawks and small birds.
The team from Ngulla Nursery were also involved in a planting day at Tram Way Reserve in Baldivis on Saturday 28th July, supplying plants and offering advice on weed control and bush care.
National Tree day is part of the U.N. Planet Ark project which intends to plant¬†1 billion plants¬†around the world each year. This is the first time Bridging the Gap has organised this event and given its success ‚Äď we hope to make it an annual event.
Well done to all and we hope to see you again next year!
