Regeneration Grants for Bushfire affected residents
Posted on: 23.12.2020
The Rotary Club of Picton has partnered with Wollondilly Shire Council to spread some Christmas cheer to residents who lost their homes in the Green Wattle Creek Bushfire.
Rotary have given a grant to Wollondilly Shire Council to allow Wollondilly residents who lost their homes or suffered significant damage to purchase plants or gardening supplies from local nurseries to regenerate their gardens and support local wildlife.
Each resident who lost their home or sustained significant damage to their home may be eligible for $300 in vouchers which can be redeemed at six nurseries across Wollondilly Shire including Dowler’s Nursery, Downes Wholesale Nursery, Maryvale Farm Nursery, Sunset Nursery, Tahmoor Garden Centre or Thirlmere Nursery.
Wollondilly Shire Council is very excited to partner with the Rotary Club of Picton to deliver this project as it will not only support our bushfire impacted residents, but also several local businesses who were impacted indirectly by the Green Wattle Creek Bushfire.
For many residents the increased costs associated with rebuilding or repairing their homes and replacing things like machinery and fencing has made landscaping a low priority. It is hoped that these grants will allow residents to replant gardens with established trees to regenerate their gardens, support wildlife and regain lost privacy.
The vouchers are available now at Wollondilly Shire Council and can be used any time until 31 May 2021.
Residents interested in finding out more or obtaining their vouchers can contact Wollondilly Shire Council on 4677 1100 or email email@example.com
