People have the power

Big Sky Country
People have the power
Show Notes

What does it take to restore a native woodland? A bucket, hammer, trowel, seedlings and a whole heap of people power. These ingredients are abundant at Scottsdale Reserve on Ngarigo and Ngunnawal Country in New South Wales where for over seven years, volunteers have been showing up week after week to help plant over 40,000 trees. While their efforts might seem small in a global context, what they prove is that where there’s a will, there’s a way. And where’s there’s people, there’s the power to change the world for better.  

Conservation is a people issue; we’ve caused the problems and we have the power to fix the problems – while having a whole heap of green-thumbed fun.  

Featuring Phil Palmer, Kim Jarvis, Antia Brademann and Scottsdale volunteers. 
Produced by Coco McGrath and Eliza Herbert.
