Four local Kwinana community
groups are the lucky recipients of funds to support their ‘green’ projects.
Mayor Carol Adams said the
Kwinana Greening Fund provides financial support for community groups to
plant trees native to the Perth Metropolitan area as well as undertake other
projects aimed at preserving or rehabilitating natural bushland.
“The Kwinana Greening Fund
enables local communities to ‘green up’ spaces that are special to them,” said
Provided by the State
Government, community groups can apply for several projects and each
project can be between 1 to 3 years in duration. There is also the
opportunity for several projects to be combined together. The funding for
projects comes from a pool of $95,000. The aims of the fund are to increase the
urban tree canopy or restore areas of bushland.
The North Parmelia
Primary School Parents and Citizens Association have applied for funds to
rehabilitate the degraded areas of bushland in and around the school, in
particular in an area close to the school drop off area. They will be
undertaking weed control and planting to improve the area, increase the school
community’s awareness of local flora and fauna, increase green canopy, and
promote student’s interaction and connection with nature.
Deputy Premier Roger Cook said we are privileged to live in such a
beautiful and tree rich electorate such as Kwinana.
“It was a pleasure to visit North Parmelia Primary School and support a
grant for the planting of trees on the school grounds” Roger Cook MLA said.
“The greening fund is a great
way to encourage our youth and schools to participate in beautifying their
surroundings by planting trees” he said.
