From little things big things grow is the best way to describe the community nursery at Yankalilla. This project started as a Green Army project to create a small plant nursery capable of growing 2,000 seedlings. This group was able to create the nursery and propagate 4,000 seedlings for coastal projects.
This success was followed by community interest through the Normanville Natural Resource to create a public facility that is growing 7,000 local native seedlings for local coastal projects and planning to double in size.
This presentation will go through the growth of this project and provide information on how you can do this too.
Corey has been working in the role of a Coastal Conservation Officer for over 10 years. Major projects have focused on implementing the Southern Fleurieu Coastal Action Plan between Sellicks and Goolwa. More recently two 20 Million Tree Grants at Cape Jervis and Wirrina have added an additional 100ha on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
