Beaudesert ENERGEX Junior Landcare Day

Description

At the beginning of the school year twelve students in the year 4/5 class at Tamrookum State School planted the seed of local blue gum and iron bark threes into trays of river sand. When their seedlings had grown to about 3 cm tall they carefully transplanted each one into individual tube stock and then cared for them until they were large enough to hand over to Beaudesert Land Care to be used to help restore Cyrus Creek. The plants grown by the children at Tamrookum were passed onto the children from Beaudesert to plant with the help of Beaudesert Landcare group, traditional custodion of the land Auntie Lavinia of the Mununjali people, ENERGEX and Landcare Queensland. ENERGEX generously provided the financial support necessary to make the day happen. The seeds' journey symbolises the passing on of responsibility for caring for the land from one generation to the next and epitomises the spirit of Junior Landcare.
