Background

The project site was once part of the old Moriarty farm which was cleared of almost all native vegetation in the mid to late 1800`s. Weeds presently dominate the understory however there are still small communities of native plant and canopy tree species.

Objective

This project will restore approximately 2 hectares of degraded land on both sides of the Ludlow River between the Tuart Drive and Ludlow Road, North bridges by infill planting of native species endemic to the area and sourced from local nurseries. 

The improved land will will help support and encourage the return and protection of birds and small marsupials such as bandicoots, ringtail and brush tail possums and enhance the natural biodiversity of this area.

Progress to date

  • The has been agreed and our surveyors have provided a map of the proposed Ludlow mill & settlement lease and currently working on the project coordinates.
  • The LTFRG Landscaping Committee are supporting initial work on the ground.
  • Peter Rutgers is preparing to level some areas of the project site to prevent pooling of water.

Selection of local provenance plants

The following native species have been recorded along the Ludlow River near our planting site. The list will be used as the basis of our planting with final selection in late September 2020.

Other projects

Plantrite project
Plantrite native nursery awarded us one of their Grown for Purpose in-kind grants https://plantrite.com.au/grown-for-purpose/ for our revegetation project at the Ludlow settlement. Plantrite will supply $3,000 of native plants for winter 2020. The plants will be used by our Landscaping subcommittee to revegetate around the Ludlow River and along Ludlow North Road, adjacent to some of our settlement houses.

The plants have been ordered and will be delivered to site in May 2020.  In the meantime, the ground will be prepared for planting.
