This is an inspirational little story about Tony O’Connor’s attempts to restore Balcombe Creek in Mount Martha back to a landscape where native vegetation and wildlife can flourish.
SInce last year Tony has been overseeing an energetic community land-care effort with the help of young people from schools around the Mornington Peninsula.
This video was shot and edited by students from Mount Eliza Secondary College’s Real Time Learning program with some help from Whitewater.
This is a wonderful example of how young people, given the opportunity to be involved in their community, won’t disappoint.
Good on them and good on Tony
