The Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants program is proving to be very popular, and we are excited to announce the second round of recipients.
Sixteen primary schools in regional areas of Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and New South Wales are recipients of the first ever Bushmans Junior Landcare Grants program.
