Weeping Lilly Pilly Project Update from Landcare

Sustaining the Williams Valley Inc (SWV Inc) has been regenerating the riparian zone on the Williams River at Frank Robinson Reserve since 2017.  Initial funding was sourced from Hunter Water in 2018 and further funds were received from the Greater Bank in 2021 to plant 5,000 trees/shrubs at the site.  Over the last five years the site has been maintained by volunteers with some professional help from contractors when use of herbicide was required.  Despite many setbacks, drought, floods and errant council works the site has established well and now has a diverse range of species.

You can find more information about the bulk buy on our website along with a form to fill in if you’re interested in getting a system for your place (residential or commercial).  If you have any questions or ideas for community projects, send them to  Alternatively if you will be in Dungog on Saturday morning 10th April, we will be outside the CWA Hall next to the Growers Market.  We’ll have a banner so you won’t miss us.
