Tuart planting - 2022

Once again, the Ludlow Tuart Forest Restoration Group will be planting tuart seedlings in the Ludlow forest.
The planting will occur during the last two weeks of school term 2 (Monday 20 - Friday 1 July 2022). As with previous years planting, there will be morning and afternoon planting sessions, supervised by our volunteers.

If you have any questions, please contact Bill Biggins on 0419 944 251

School planting days

Adult volunteers note - Adult volunteers during therse days will require a valid Working With Children (WWC) check. The WWC check applications are $11 and forms available at your local Post Office.

  • The form will need to be signed by our group representative
  • The WWC check is valid once the form is submitted and you have a receipt.

Non-school planting days

We have now secured a further 10,000 tuart seedlings. This planting will be done outside school planting days and therefore a WWC check will not be required.

What to bring

All participants are required to wear;

  • enclosed footwear
  • long pants
  • long sleeve shirt
  • hat
  • Gardening gloves
  • waterproof jacket (if necessary)

You can bring your own refreshment & snacks. Water, sunscreen and insect repellent will be provided and there will be a first aid post and a splendid toilet on site

We will be working in a State forest

We will be working in a State forest which is under the authority of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. Please read the attached Code of Conduct prior to registration at the Ludlow Mill compound.
