Trees for habitat and mums

A steady stream of enthusiastic tree planters came to plant natives at a Mullumbimby Creek property on Sunday.

The annual Mothers Day event saw the eight thousandth tree planted, according to organisers. Along with food and drinks, participants were entertained by Maisey Taylor, Blindmouth and Chris Mallory.

The tree plantings happen because of the support of the Brunswick Valley Landcare, Byron Shire Council, Jim Olivier, Byron Habitat Corridors, Mullum Chamber of Commerce, Mullum Creek Native Nursery, The Echo, The Tree Hugger, Mullum Ex-Services Club, Jim Beatson, and oh yes, the Mullum Music Festival.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
