WAIKERIE Men's Shed members
have been helping with an
environmental watering program at
The project has run for 18 months.
Nature Foundation SA donated water to ir-
rigate black box and river red gum seedlings
that germinated after the 2011 floods.
Riverland West Landcare project officer
Karen Bishop said the project was labour in-
tensive and relied on help from volunteers.
"It is quite a labour intensive project
requiring the aluminium irrigation pipes
to be manually manoeuvred to each new
watering site," she said.
"The pumping infrastructure also has
to be relocated periodically and this too is
a large job requiring a few hands to shift.
"We rely heavily on volunteers and to
have these men come on board to help us
out is fantastic and much appreciated."
Meanwhile Waikerie Men's Shed has
received $500 to pipe rainwater to a land-
scaped area and create a raised vegetable
The group was one of 16 recipients to
receive funding from the Philmac Project.
Australian manufacturer Philmac pro-
vided cash grants of up to $5000 to commu-
nity organisations in rural and regional
Now in its third round, the scheme
received a record number of applications
before entries closed in mid December, with
more than 100 organisations submitting
ideas to save water and improve water qual-
ity in their communities.
A judging panel selected 12 recipients
from shortlists determined with public
The panel also awarded four special
grants for 2015 as part of a new Bluey
Award, open to any applicant.
Philmac managing director Mark Nykiel
said he was impressed with the number,
quality and scope of applications received
in the latest round, particularly from small-
er and more isolated rural communities.
"The Philmac Project is obviously meet-
ing a considerable need for cash to help
bring to life often small-scale projects that
will make a big difference to local com-
munities and at the same time benefit the
environment," he said.
"The latest round of grants will enable
more people to learn how to grow fresh
fruit and vegetables, create greener spaces
for children to play in and safer playing
surfaces for local sporting clubs, and pro-
vide clean drinking water for people and
