Pilbara greening

(1984) Pilbara greening. Elders Weekly, 26 April 1984. p. 8 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Town life in the Pilbara is becoming greener and more pleasant with the help of people like Judymae Jackson and Michael Hughes. Judymae and Michael were in Perth last week to receive trade certificates, having successfully completed four year horticultural apprenticeships, based at the Bentley Technical College. They are both employed by the Forests Department in the nursery in Karratha, and were members of a group of 16 rural Western Australian trainees who started the course in 1980.

This article contains an image of Judymae Jackson and Michael Hughes in the gardens surrounding the Forests Department headquarters in Como.
