REFORM Hill is set for further revegetation after Friends of Reform Hill (FRH) received a grant of $10,000 through the State Government’s Communities for Nature program.
After two previous failed grant applications FRH was finally successful in its third attempt to attain funding from the government initiative.
The money will go towards the purchase and replanting of native shrubs, grasses and trees on the 10 hectare site.
The continued development of the site will also enable the FRH to expand the area available for growth of the vulnerable Stony Bush Pea, which grows in only three forest sites in Victoria.
FRH convenor John Taylor was extremely pleased the group could secure funds for what he calls stage one of the project.
According to Mr Taylor, the end goal for Reform Hill is to be returned to the once vibrant recreational facility it was in the 1930s.
