Greg and Rachel Hart’s Mangarara Station is a 610ha regenerative sheep and beef farm near Elsthorpe. The couple are passionate about restoring biodiversity on the farm and, over the past 13 years, have planted more than 115,000 trees, both native and exotic.
In June, twenty volunteers, over the space of a week helped plant more than 2,000 trees in some of the wettest and wildest weather we’ve had this year. These hardy souls were rewarded with hot meals, good company and a warm, comfy bed – and, of course, had the satisfaction of knowing that they were helping make the world a better place.
