What, Why, Where, When & How of Revegetation Post Bushfire

Eco-anxiety and Wellbeings What, Why, Where, When & How of Revegetation Post Bushfire

The What, Why, Where, When & How of Revegetation Post Bush-fire project is a region-wide project. Through this project, Far East Victoria Landcare has developed a new and improved Revegetation Guide for fire-effected areas of East Gippsland which is based on the guide originally produced by the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network after the 2009 fires. The guide has been developed to provide landholders with practical advice and guidelines to allow them to make informed decisions on species selection and how, when and where to plant, and even whether to plant at all, on fire-affected land.

The guide is FREE to the public, and can be collected from the Landcare office in Orbost.

If you’re not in the area and would like one mailed to you, don’t hesitate to contact Shirali Dave at project.officer@fevl.org.au, and ask for a copy to be sent to you!

In November 2021, FEVL ran an online event where guest speakers were invited to discuss best practice revegetation, post-fire succession, mental health and wellbeing, insectaries, planting to encourage pollinators and more. These workshops covered topics of interest to both the gardener and small and large landholders and focus on improving biodiversity in bushfire affected areas.
