Border controls have led BlazeAid to open a second camp to allow more volunteers to assist in the Upper Murray fire recovery.
A Walwa base was set up in addition to the original Jingellic hub as a way to reduce the number of border crossings and permits needed.
Volunteers from Victorian COVID-free regional areas arrived within days and were soon out on the fence lines.
As well as fencing, BlazeAid is rolling out two new programs in the area.
Fire-affected farmers may be eligible for perennial grass seed to re-establish pastures burned in the summer fires, while the Trillions of Paddock Trees program will be trialled from the Walwa camp next week.
To apply for the programs or join the volunteers contact co-ordinator Natalie Trigwell on 0497 717 605.

Volunteers not only work the fence lines but also make sure the camps run smoothly by cooking, cleaning and helping with administration.
"There are jobs for all ages and skill levels," BlazeAid said.
"There are many ways you can help us help your community."
