Grant Acknowledgements

The average age of our group has remained about 70 since its inception, largely by attracting the recently-retired. Grants enable us to contract local small business to do bush regeneration on our site. As well as giving an environmental benefit, this has provided some $0.5m for local employment, predominantly of young people. Those employed by our contractors have successfully attained TAFE certification in bush regeneration.

We are proud to have participated over many years in training sessions for TAFE students. These students obtain employment in areas like mine rehabilitation around Australia. Those who have obtain employment with local businesses engaged in environmental work have sometimes returned to work on our site.




 

 Here, a TAFE-trained bush regeneration team is removing privet and other weeds from among rainforest seedlings that are regenerating on the banks of Ourimbah Creek.

This kind of intensive and skilled work has been made possible by a number of grants over the years. These grants support small business (bush regeneration contractors) and youth employment on the Central Coast while having a lasting effect on biodiversity.
