national tree day

we are celebrating National Tree Day with a community tree planting at the Helen Houghton Reserve on Sunday July 29, and everyone's invited.

trees will be supplied by the Scenic Rim Regional Council with support from Greening Australia.

arranged by the Boonah Organisation for a Sustainable Shire, the annual community planting days work to offset carbon emissions created in other activities.

the day officially starts at 9am, but some keen workers will be there earlier to do a bit of planting and clearing. everyone is more than welcome to join us. Feel free to bring along any trees you'd like to offer to the site - as long as they are native and reasonably frost hardy. it would be great if you could also bring along implements to help.

to thank everyone for their contributions, there’ll be a free morning tea over the road at the Organic Shed which will be open and selling their great organic produce.

here's our
event details from the planet ark national tree day site, and pictures from previous community planting days at helen's reserve and the fassifern reserve.
