Grants Details:

In late 2019, 16 primary schools in regional areas of Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and New South Wales were recipients of the first ever Bushmans Junior Landcare Grants program. Bushmans
Tanks funds these grants in an effort to increase awareness about rainwater harvesting and to support children in playing an active role in creating a sustainable future.

The successful grant projects focused on water conservation, ranging from installing irrigation systems, creating native and bush tucker gardens to frog bogs. See case studies below about results from a couple of these projects.
