Mullum Music Fest began a Mothers Day planting eight years ago. (supplied)

The ninth Mullum Music Festival (MMF) native tree planting is planned for Mothers Day, May 12, at the Teak Tree Farm, located at 141 Dingo Lane, Myocum, from 9am till 1pm.

The free community event will feature music by Bethany Jolly, Blindmouth (MMF 2018 youth mentorship winners), Loose Content, and Mullumgrad’s very own Dustyesky Russian choir.

Organisers say another 1,000-plus trees will be planted by the Mullum Music Festival, Brunswick Valley Landcare, and a team of wonderful sustainability supporters. Brunswick Valley Landcare will provide coffee, tea, drinks and a barbecue brunch for a gold coin donation. 

Organisers say the plantings will build upon previous koala-habitat corridor work in the Myocum area. Planting starts at 9am, music and refreshments until 12.30pm. 

Trees will be provided and laid out ready for planting at the site. Bring drinking water and appropriate clothing for planting.
