It’s planting season!

Ariel and Thomas joined Ajahn J.R. to pick up our latest batch of native seedlings from Armadale City Council. This is the third year in a row we have taken part in the Habitat Links Program. Each year we request a variety of species native to our area or the Perth hills. This year we have 170 tubes and will receive another 20 rushes later in the year.
