Jonathan Mitchell - Transforming his patch

Written by 


... and more
Jonathan has transformed his place from a barren and eroded block with six remnant trees to a lush oasis with habitat for creatures great and small. He has been in Mt Vincent for 20 years and was active as secretary of the Mulbring Valley Landcare group. See before photo c. 1984. He helped secure funding from Greening Australia to plant 6000 trees in the area - stabilising local creek banks and linking Mt Heaton to Mt Vincent. He has planted over 1500 trees on his property. The GER and Stepping Stones project has supported Jonathan to plant 400 trees this year and he has plans to plant 800 more in new corridors and stepping stones across his place.
As well as the Stepping Stones Supporter Program, he is also registered with The Great Eastern Rangers Supporter Program.
