FNPW awarded one of three initial Bushfire Recovery Nursery grants to Greening Australia’s Community Nursery, located in Aranda, ACT.

This came as part of the first stage of FNPW’s mission to plant 1 million trees in Bushfire Recovery Nurseries over the next five years, in partnership with global non-profit, One Tree Planted and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE.

The grant awarded to Greening Australia will extend the capacity of its current nursery by 40,000 trees, resulting in 160,000 trees. This will be a major step in supporting the recovery of the South Coast to Gippsland Corridor, with funding also allocated towards upgrades to the irrigation system, nursery benches and trolleys, as well as essential supplies such as potting mix, trays and pots.
