A big congratulations to Friends of Lochiel Park for winning the giveaway after submitting their story about how Green Adelaide helped their group take environmental on-ground action. You can read their story below:

Friends of Lochiel Park received a Green Adelaide Grassroots Grant in 2020 to create a native grassland revegetation and biodiversity resource for Lochiel Park.
The grant enabled the group to purchase equipment, propagate grassland seedlings, purchase grassland local provenance seedlings and engage with eminent botanist Ann Prescott so the group could learn more about native grasses of the area.
Thanks to this grant Friends of Lochiel Park are now able to continue protecting and conserving local grasslands, and have planned a second planting event for July this year.
