The annual community Mother’s Day tree planting is near Durrumbul this Sunday, 8 May, 9am to 12noon.
This year Brunswick Valley Landcare (BVL) are celebrating 11 years of the community coming together to plant 1,000 trees in the Brunswick Valley catchment.
‘We always choose species suited to the site, and previous plantings have now grown into valuable wildlife corridors and habitat,’ said the Brunswick Valley Landcare organisers.
‘This is a wonderful way of honouring our mothers, especially our Mother Earth.’
The event involves all the usual delights, such as President Pete’s delicious barbecue, homemade cakes and sweets, and amazing local musicians will be playing music during and after the planting.
Make sure you wear a hat, sunscreen, gloves, wet weather boots and bring some water and a BYO coffee cup.
‘Bookings are appreciated so we have an idea of numbers for catering,’ say organisers. Details of where to go will be given via email once you have registered at: mothersdayplanting2022.eventbrite.com.au.
