Trees for Life...

TFL April24

Exciting moment - Rotary Adelaide tree growing members recently had the opportunity to meet Peter the Landholder at Adelaide Airport, South Australia. We have been growing 1200 of our 1440 trees for Peter to plant on their property at Cummins., Eyre Peninsula.

It was pretty special to meet up with Peter face to face at the Adelaide Airport. He filled us in about where the trees are at that were planted last year (which we grew 600 trees for Peter last year) and also what his plans are now with planting the 1200 trees we have grown for him this year.

Peter thanked Rotary Adelaide team growing members for caring so much about trees and he has enjoyed working with us over the 2 years and appreciates what we are doing with him. President Cam and the team thanked Peter for allowing us to grow for him and that we've enjoyed the opportunity. It's lovely knowing that the trees will be looked after and will be of benefit to the environment, flora and fauna and people of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

Australian Rotary Health Indigenous Health Scholarship…Creating better health outcomes!

Australian Rotary Health Scholarships for Indigenous Health Scholars, is a co-operative program between Australian Rotary Health and the Rotary Club of Adelaide, in association with the SA and Commonwealth Governments. Initially intended to train doctors to work amongst other Indigenous people, the scope of the scheme enlarged to permit the training of nurses and health related professionals. Since its inception this program has spread throughout the Rotary community with scholars being supported in each of the mainland states and in the Northern Territory.  The scholarship can be used to assist Indigenous students with their day-to-day expenses while they undertake a course in a wide range of health-related professions, with a purpose to assist students gain an education which will in turn enable a benefit of other Indigenous people – hopefully, but not necessarily, in some of our remote areas.
