City of Sydney Council is holding a free tree-planting event for Mother’s Day. They say,
“For those whose mum has died, it is a chance to remember & reflect…
For those blessed with a living mum, it is a fantastic gesture to show your love…”
- Sunday 8th May 2011
- Blackwattle Bay Park – 55 Leichhardt Street Glebe
- You don’t need to be a resident of Sydney Council area to participate
- Wear suitable clothing, take a hat & some water.
‘Trees for Mum’ is a national tree-planting event in Australia that was established in 2002 by Lauren Adlam & Deena Raphael who sadly lost their mothers to cancer. The first & subsequent events have had the support of Manly Council. Since 2010, Alecia Braven manages the yearly event.
‘Trees for Mum,’ tree-planting event was originally established to honour mothers that had passed away. It has since grown to include a chance to show love to your mother while she is alive.
“To date more than 20,000 people have participated in the Trees for Mum Mother’s Day program at over 100 planting sites across Australia.” How lovely to plant a living memorial for your Mum. The space in which the tree is planted will always be special. I think this is a fantastic idea.
