WISALTS column

(1986) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 27 February 1986. p. 40 [Publication] [Special Collections]


At the beginning of this month, Greening Australia (WA) announced the opening of the National Tree Programme Grants for 1986. Greening Australia (WA) has a total of $56,000 from Federal and State Governments to distribute to all sectors of the community, mainly on a dollar for dollar basis. Projects eligible for grants include natural regeneration of native trees and shrubs, establishment of woodlands and shelterbelts by direct seeding, planting, maintenance and improvement of trees, education programmes and public view projects. Greening Australia is a community-based organisation embracing community groups and individuals with a genuine concern for trees. WISALTS consultants and farmers will be completing the second part of the WISALTS School at Kellerberrin tomorrow. Part of the "raison d'etre" of the schools was to increase understanding of water movement and how to best control it to advantage on farms. The 20 or so attending this week, and the beginners last week, would have found their time spent of value.
