As it’s now the start of the planting season and is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors, the City of Greater Geraldton is hosting Community Tree Planting Days to help restore Geraldton’s beautiful bushland.
The planting days will take place over a six week period which started last Saturday June 7 at the Chapman River Estuary.
Following planting days include:
- Saturday June 14 from 2pm to 5pm
- Saturday June 21 from 2pm to 5pm
- Saturday June 28 from 2pm to 5pm
- Saturday July 5 from 2pm to 5pm
*Locations to be confirmed.
Everyone is invited to join and no gardening experience is required. Remember to wear clothes suitable to gardening including enclosed shoes, gloves and hat, and bring a hand spade if you own one.
City of Greater Geraldton Senior Sustainability and Environmental Officer, Robyn Nicholas, said the last planting day saw thirty people assist the sustainability team.
“Overall, 500 seedlings were planted, watered and protected from rabbits with corflute protectors into the Chapman River Estuary,” she said.
“Without community help and support we wouldn’t be able to achieve as much, everyone’s time and assistance is gratefully received.”
