LCDC SUBSIDISED TREES
A reminder to all rate payers of the opportunity to secure seedlings using the LCDC subsidy of up to $250. Your order must be a minimum of 1,000 seedlings and placed via the Landcare Office. Saltbush is a good option and can be planted for that autumn grazing gap. If you are interested in securing seedlings of Eyre’s Green or Anameka saltbush you must order NOW as supplies will be limited. Contact Claudia on 0429612447 or firstname.lastname@example.org
