Tree planting and FUN fund raising for trees!

Posted on April 28th, 2013 in Events,Fund Raising,Tree Planting by Kate Wade

Hi there,

Great work on the tree planting today. I got the following email from John just a moment ago…

Hi Kate,

Had a great day today. Lots of people turned up and 120 trees were in by about lunchtime. I did not expect so many to came so it was bit chaotic, as Nick probably told you, but the standard of planting was very good. 

The next tree planting day is Sunday 5th May and then Sunday 19 of May. …

Regards, John.

Great job those of you who went up!! Hope you can make it to one of the next tree planting sessions 5th and 19th of May.

Also to raise awareness of the tree planting project, to raise the $10,000 needed for the trees, and to celebrate earth day, we are organising an event at Discovery College sometime in May. The date is yet to be confirmed but at this stage we plan to have a childrens and adult afternoon/evening. There will be wine from our generous wine sponsor ‘Barefoot Wines’ (who are helping us aim for Barefoot beaches!), and nibbles and we will be selling the very generous donation of about 9 (!!) candy stripe bags of clothes, bags and hats from The Earth Collection range I received just a few days ago. Thank you BCC Pacific up there in the plaza! We will be showing a movie called ‘Dirt” which looks great and we would love for you to join us and bring ALL your friends. John will give a short talk on his vision for the conservation area here in DB and we will basically have fun! It costs $10 per tree so we will sell the clothes, wine and nibbles in amounts of trees you are purchasing- and still it will be a bargain! Keep an eye out for that event!

Keep an eye on this site for more info of all the exciting events happening in May! I will send out all the dates shortly.

Cheers, and have a great week!
