UPPER MURRAY COMMUNITY RECOVERY – PLANT DONATION #3
Thursday, 15 April 2021
Wodonga TAFE’s Agriculture and Horticulture department have continued with their ongoing support of the Upper Murray communities after the devastating bushfires of 2019/2020, and the continued recovery from the impact of COVID-19 on the region.
The AgHort department have now donated another 250 plants to the Upper Murray Community Recovery Hub in order to help with both local community and group projects. The plants are the third such donation from the department, who have spent time researching specific varieties suited to the region. The department aren’t stopping there, as they are currently in the process of growing more seedlings to continue to provide their support for the region as it recovers.
David Foote, Manager of Industrial Skills and Trades, was pleased to be a part of the recovery and said “We’re happy to help provide any kind of help and support to our local communities as we can. We have all had a tough year overcoming the impact of COVID, but here is a community that has had to overcome that, and the horrible bushfires of 2019/2020, so it’s important to continue to support those around us that have been through so much over these past two years.”
