‘Grow West’ landscape award
Grow West, nominated for a Mayor’s Award this year, will
again offer the Landscape Award in 2011 at the Rotary Club of
Bacchus Marsh Art Show and Sale, over the Queen’s Birthday
weekend in June.
Grow West is one of Australia’s most ambitious programs
of landscape restoration. With a vision of healthy waterways,
healthy soils and resilient ecosystems, Grow West was launched
in 2003 as one of Victoria’s largest restoration projects.
The objective is the rejuvenation of 10,000 hectares of land
in the Upper Werribee Catchment, taking in most of the
Moorabool Shire, by transforming the landscape through the
implementation of sustainable land management practices
such as revegetation, farm forestry and remnant enhancement
and protection works.
The landscape award of $1000 is given to the best interpretation
of Grow West landscape and program objectives. More
information can be found at www.growwest.com.au
