Since returning to Marysville, progress has been steady.
Plans and permits needed be obtained to even begin rebuilding Bruno’s Home and gallery so whilst all of that was developing in the background, the focus has been solely on cleaning up the garden and re-landscaping property. This has been no small feat. The mess left over by the fires was atrocious. Literally tons of debris had to be removed from the forested area. With the help of friends and volunteers this process took two months.
After that is was time to start replanting. The native ferns rebounded very well and the green is slowly returning to the area. It will be many years though before the forest resembles the lush wonderland that it used to be.

Bruno managed to secure one of the few properties that survived the fires as a rental property and now lives permanently in Marysville again. Every day now he is working away at restoring the gardens and adding exciting new features. Re-construction of Bruno’s home is now well under way.
