Plants for Peace

Report to SCI for Natural Disaster Fund

IVP Australia has been working on a project called ‘Plants for Peace’ to help with recovery after the catastrophic fires of the Summer of 2019-20 in Australia. They are collecting surplus plants from nurseries and delivering them to affected communities from Blue Mountains to Sydney’s west and Southern Highlands to as far south as Cobargo, approximately 400km south of Sydney. The project is designed not only to assist with environmental recovery but also help with mental health of traumatised residents.
