Community Tree Planting Day Galbraith Creek


The recent rain was welcome, but it did make our site at Galbraith Creek too wet for the scheduled tree planting day on the 23rd November. We tried again on the 30th November, and the going was very easy thanks to Alf Cutuli, who ripped the ground for us, and the CVA volunteers who dug the holes. 

Our dedicated band of volunteers put in over 350 plants on the day. It was hot work but we were kept going by frequent breaks for cold drinks and watermelon, and close supervision by young DJ in the boss's chair.

If you missed out, keep an eye on the newsletter and Facebook as we will have follow up early bird planting days over the next few months to complete our targets.

Thanks to everyone who supported the event and thanks to our sponsor, Queensland Government Everyone's Environment Grants.
