More plants to support people rebuilding from the Black Summer bushfires are growing bigger each day thanks to the care they are receiving from local school children.
Convoy of Hope's Regrow Conjola, which started last year, continues to play an important role in helping people recover from the bushfires by giving them free plants.
The organisation's Business and Program Manager, Kevin Cassanego, recently delivered more plants to several schools in the Ulladulla area.
"Currently Regrow Conjola has 1200 tube-stock out in schools [Sydney and Ulladulla/Milton] in the process of being planted into pots," he said.
"The students at St Mary's Star of the Sea and Ulladulla Public School had a wonderful experience, as did all the adults, learning about natives and potting the tube-stock.
"Once into pots, these plants will be cared for by the students with regular watering and nutrients."
On Friday June 4 at 12.30pm at Hoylake Park Conjola Park, the students will give these plants to people in Conjola and surround residents whose gardens were impacted by 2019/2020 bushfires.
Mr Cassanego said the program would not be a success without the support from businesses, garden clubs and schools.
"Thanks to Carole and Vicki from Ulladulla, Bunnings came out to help with workshops and donated 80 bags of potting mix to schools," Kevin said.
"A big thanks to Nigel and the Bunnings store in Batemans Bay who also provided potting mix for schools in the Eurobodalla and Bega Valley Shire, who are planting over 2200 tube-stock into pots over the coming months to give to residents impacted by the fires.
"Finally, a big big thanks to Cassandra and the team at Mullala Nursery, Ulladulla, Marina and the team at Harvest Seed Nursery, Terrey Hills and Dot and Don and the five garden clubs of the Central Coast who have provided us with beautiful tube-stock, pots and trays."
He hopes to see as many residents as possible on June 4 at the presentation.
