2020 Bushmans Junior Landcare Grants
For the second year in a row, Bushmans Tanks has provided funding for schools to undertake environmental projects with a focus on water conservation. Fifteen primary and high schools in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland are the recipients of 2020 Bushmans Junior Landcare Grants, each of up $1,000.
The below successful grant recipients are undertaking a range of projects that will conserve and maximise water usage while creating tucker and native gardens, worm farms, composting, sensory gardens and one school will construct a frog pond.
Water conservation tactics the schools are employing include drip irrigation, mulching, improving soil quality, using drought tolerate plants, rainwater tanks, solar water pumps and greenhouses.
The schools will complete their project in April 2021 and the Junior Landcare Team looks forward to sharing the outcomes.
