John Tonkin College in Mandurah  -  tree planting project on Yamdana

John Tonkin College in Mandurah have set up a tree planting project on ‘Yamdana’, a property near Pingrup.  The trees are being planted to help recover salt-affected land on the wheatbelt property.

JTC Bush Ranger instructor Kim Davies set up the project in 2015, on a one hectare site. This winter the cadets returned with Bush Rangers from Katanning SHS and planted 8,700 seedlings over 10 ha. The project is run in partnership with the Shire of Kent and the trees are funded by a State NRM Community Action grant.
