Seaford community re-vitalised and Marriott undertakes mass planting.


By Jennifer Lumsden, June 7 2019

Marriott Enviro Management Services (EMS) crews have planted thousands of indigenous plants as part of the Seaford Level Crossing Removal project. Community revitalisation is an integral part of the project giving local communities, among other things, improved green space to encourage exercise and use of the outdoors.

Recently, students from Seaford Primary School joined EMS crews to assist with planting, giving the children hands-on experience to learn about indigenous plants and plant care.

It was a great day for everyone, and well done to EMS crews, here’s some feedback, ‘I just wanted to say thank you so much for your wonderful expertise and time spent with the kids from Seaford Primary.’

And from the Principal, ‘the children absolutely loved it’, as you can see by the smiles on their faces! Maybe there are some budding gardeners and landscapers among them.
