Welcome to the April and Autumn Planting Season

"The Time to Plant is Now"

We have been running a recruitment campaign for the Stepping Stones Project: ‘The Time to Plant is Now!’ on Radio 2NM / Power FM in the Upper Hunter in recent weeks.  The aim of the campaign is to engage with more landowners in the Muswellbrook and Merriwa Plateau area, and offer assistance for planning and planting to establish some critically important stepping stones in the Upper Hunter. Planting has started on the 90 ha or so of projects we have locked in across the Hunter. We are of course also looking for more planting opportunities in the Lower Hunter around and within the Lower Hunter Green Corridor – so if you know anyone let us know...

Also, thanks to a handful of our dedicated landholders we have produced two inspirational videos about the Stepping Stones project. They feature examples from Stepping Stones on ground activities and interviews with participating landowners from both the upper and lower Hunter telling their stories and spruiking the benefits of joining this project. These videos were filmed and produced at the end of last year by Rosemary and Geoff Crane from Mosquito Productions.
You can check out the radio ad and have a look at the videos both which are on display on the front page of our website http://gersteppingstones.org.au/.  Please pass on this message to any landowners you think might be interested in receiving planting assistance on their properties – The Time to Plant is Now!
