As a group whose average age is about 70, we are unable to do all the work of bush regeneration that we would like. However, we are grateful for the support of several grants that enable us to employ contracted bush regenerators. As well as giving an environmental benefit, this provides much-needed employment for those who have been through TAFE training in bush regeneration.

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.
