Event description


It’s been said before but we can’t say it enough – thank you all for your contribution to a really fantastic day back in June when we planted 900 trees on Leanganook – for your donations and/or your help on the day.

Here’s a date to put in your diaries: Sunday 22 October 2017, 9:30am – 12noon

We’d love to share another fun morning with you – this time to do some maintenance as we continue to care for the 900 trees that we planted together back in June this year. It’s really important to us that we continue to nurture these trees and the sight and teach our kids to care for their local environment.

Actually, the trees are looking fantastic! We guess about a 98% survival rate with many of them thriving (some reaching the tops of their guards). On the day we’ll replace any missing guards, fix up any guards and do a little weeding. We’ll also have morning tea together (provided) and stop to have our picnic lunch (BYO).

Based on some of the feedback we received after the planting day we’re also going to throw in a half hour information session from one of our LHH Dad’s on things like why we chose these species of plants, the importance of ongoing maintenance and the significance of biodiversity (this may help you with your own garden and land).

A few things to note:

- No toilet on site. The closest is at the Leanganook Campground (aprrox 1km away)

- Park at Leanganook Campground or the Koala Park parking area (a few hundred metres away) and walk down the hill. Please take lots of care when walking on the road.

- BYO: gloves, sturdy shoes, wet weather gear, warm weather gear, sunhat, sunscreen, pen and paper (if staying for the talk), picnic lunch.

- Provided: tea, coffee and morning tea snacks.

Donations – If you’d like to donate please go to Funds will be used for ongoing maintenance of the already planted trees and future plantings to further enhance the site.

Please RSVP by Saturday 14th October via this webpage.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.
