A Great Relief

Liz Tilley, a survivor of the January 2003 firestorm in Canberra, has collated some tips for the general public and for disaster relief organisers.

The Tree Project

"To remember the people lost to the fires and our brave CFA men and women who battled the elements to protect our towns, the Australian Blacksmiths Association (Victoria) Inc. is inviting blacksmiths from across the country and around the world to contribute to The Tree Project. Blacksmiths worldwide are helping us grow a tree from their forges and fires; creating gum leaves from stainless steel or copper to be added to a forged gumtree. This gumtree is to be erected in one of the affected townships as a memorial of these events, for the loss suffered and for the spirit of renewal."

Visit The Tree Project to sponsor a leaf for the tree.
