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.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
