Community Planting Days


What is Community Planting Day?

Every year, the Town’s Urban Forest Team holds community planting days. It is a day where residents and community members are invited to plant tree seedlings at a selected park or area around Town that has been identified as suitable for creating Urban Ecosystems. 

Our community planting day coincides with celebrating National Tree Day - on 1 August - every year, where Australians are encouraged to help plant one million new native trees and shrubs across the country. 

Community Planting Days are family friendly events and the Town invites everyone to don their gardening gear, bring their gardening gloves and spade to attend a planting event. The Town will provide all seedlings and other fun community activities. 

Did you know? Our 2020 Community Planting Day at Charles Patterson Park contributed 1707m2 of canopy cover! Find out more.

What are the 2021 Community Planting Days?

In 2021, the Town is pleased to hold two Community Planting Days. Details of the events are below and we encourage you to register to the event using the link below for all of the latest updates.
