We are thrilled to announce that our Creating Canopies project has secured funding from the NSW Government to plant 200,000 trees across Greater Sydney over the next 3 years! This is a huge step towards creating a greener and cooler city, improving air quality, and creating habitat for our native wildlife.
We kicked off our first planting event to celebrate our new Creating Canopies project with a very hot but rewarding planting day at the beautiful Nurragingy Reserve in Western Sydney. Staff from Blacktown City Council helped us get a whopping 1,500 trees and shrubs planted at the brand new Wawai Ngurra inclusive adventure playspace. All the plants were given a good watering in and will continue to be looked after in the coming weeks.
We can’t wait to put on more events and we hope you’ll join us in making Sydney a better place to live, work, and play. Check out our Eventbrite page for upcoming planting days: https://bit.ly/3JD7Dtm
