Give-away plants in containers meant to go straight into the ground at last year’s National Tree Day event at Sydney Park.

 

The City of Sydney Council & Planet Ark work is holding a National Tree Day at Sydney Park this Sunday 27th July 2014 from 10am – 2pm.  Meet at the southern end of Sydney Park.  

They plan for the community to plant between 4,000 & 5,000 trees. Hundreds of people attended this event last year, so I am confident the target will be reached.

Children’s television star ‘dirtgirl’ will be attending, as will cricket & soccer superstar, Ellyse Perry.  There will also be native animals, nature crafts, face painting & kids yoga. Children can also plant trees. There will be a plant giveaway & a sausage sizzle or vegie pattie for participants.

Last year’s event was fabulous. I think it is terrific that the community is given an opportunity to plant trees.  This kind of activity generates community pride & also fosters as respect for nature.  I can’t wait to see the trees in the ground & watch them grow.
