On Sunday, 29 November 2020, members from the Gold Coast Tweed Region of the SSIO along with representatives of the Sathya Sai College, worked together as part of a bush regeneration project at the Sathya Sai College, Secondary Campus in Dungay, NSW. The team dug over 100 holes in preparation for students to plant a selection of native Australian trees during their school activities as part of the bush regeneration.
The project is an excellent one fulfilling many positive objectives. Bush regeneration is a step towards climate amelioration both locally and globally, re-establishes habitat for local wildlife and provides beauty and an opportunity to experience the natural environment. The activity is also an opportunity for the students to learn of the importance and benefits of nature.
Therefore the service was a nice opportunity to give back to nature, work with members of the Sathya Sai College and also to mix with other SSIO members after a long 9 months COVID break for a service offering celebrating the 95th anniversary of the advent of Sathya Sai Baba.
