Come along and plant with your mum or for your mum on Mother’s Day.
Woodend Landcare is hosting Trees of Mum on Sunday, 8 May from 9am to midday at Campapse Park off Campaspe Drive, just the other side of the creek to the Children’s Park near the free tennis court.
Trees for Mum is a series of Australia-wide free tree planting events run by Landcare on Mother’s Day. First started in Sydney in 2002 by friends and colleagues, Deena Raphael and Lauren Adlam, as a way of paying tribute to their Mums, who they had both lost to cancer; Trees for Mum in Woodend is now in its fifth year.
The trees and shrubs will be a range of natives that are perfect for the Woodend climate. The Woodend Landcare team will be on hand with plenty of tools to help you plant them into weed mat along the bank of the creek. Everyone will be given a tree or a shrub and some grasses to plant to create an interesting habitat.
Bring along some gloves and we recommend gumboots; it might be wet and muddy. There’s no need to book this year, but if you do have a question call Angela on 0409 373 010
