    Hi, I just received this link and am interested to be involved as a professional seed collector or seed cleaner if paid positions are available. I am based in Melbourne and have been the primary seed collector and seed collection co-ordinator for both Latrobe University’s Melbourne Wildlife Sanctuary’s Keelbundora Indigenous Plant Nursery and Vinc Indigenous Plant Nursery for the last eight years. I have also seed collected for Nillumbik Council’s Edendale Indigenous Plant Nursery, and also three years for Australian Ecosystems, collecting throughout Melbourne and outside. I am familiar with most grassland, woodland, and wetland Victorian indigenous plant species and while not exactly intimate with the Southern Otway flora, I have sufficient experience with King Lake and Strezleki Ranges flora to be of adequate assistance in your program. I do have seed collecting responsibilities this year in Melbourne but also have flexible weeks to do block intensive work weeks in the Otways should you require my assistance. Please send me the required documents and I will provide all necessary info.

    Please also feel free to contact me on 0408178537
