Has your care group planted an area but some seedlings have not survived? 

Do you want to fill the gaps with new plants? The TLCA in partnership with Landcare Australia Ltd and Westpac are making funding available ($150 per group) to buy new plants, stakes and protectors to “fill-a-gap”. 

If your group is a current financial member of the TLCA (2010-
2011), you can apply for Fill-A-Gap funding.
