Working together to restore our landscape at Cardinia Creek, Victoria

Planting trees deliver benefits for the environment and for people too.

In the space of just four years, bare grazing paddocks in outer Melbourne have re-emerged as an oasis of biodiversity.  With a grant from the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation, Greenfleet worked with Parks Victoria and the Department of Justice to revegetate 13 hectares of forest in Berwick, Victoria.

But the real story is about community engagement. Not only has the project delivered green infrastructure that the community can enjoy, it’s provided a pathway to help young offenders give back into the community.

Beverley Garratt from Community Correctional Services says that the young offenders working on the project “feel valued and can measure their contribution to the community”.
