Community Service Award





Balwyn Rotary is one of the three winners of the Community District Award for its From Tiny Seeds Mighty Trees Grow Project

The devastating bushfires in the summer of 2020 left vast areas of East Gippsland in need of revegetation.
Many of our club members volunteered to germinate seeds and nurture the seedlings for this project. 985 seedlings were delivered to Mallacoota in June 2021.
This year we are aiming for 2000 seedlings. The seeds will be planted in Spring for an Autumn delivery.
Some of our members even took their seedling trays on summer holidays.

    one hand. Too old to learn new tricks perhaps. Marcus Godinho, executive
    director, spoke to us before hand about overcoming the challenges presented
    by COVID.
