First work crew already at work

The Working for Victoria program is providing important employment opportunities to local community members impacted by coronavirus.

Wimmera CMA is already employing 21 people through the program. Since the first crew started in late June they have helped Wimmera CMA, Landcare and community groups plant over 40,000 trees long waterways and other priority areas.

Wimmera CMA chief executive David Brennan said the program had been critically important for the CMA's annual revegetation projects.

"Many of the trees that these crews have planted were destined for community planting events that usually occur in July, which have been cancelled this year," he said.

So far the Working for Victoria program in the Wimmera has attracted participants with varied backgrounds including mining, natural resource management, hospitality and casual workers.

Wimmera CMA is also in discussions with the agricultural industry to address employment gaps due to shortages of labour that is usually supplied by overseas backpackers.
