Could you be part of planting 3,000 trees in a day? We’re creating an Urban Forest. The idea of creating an urban forest in Newtown is at the center of the City of Greater Geelong’s Community Planting Day event, coinciding with Planet Ark’s National Tree Day. There are already a healthy 1,000 trees thriving at The Hill Mountain Bike Park, but the City wants to increase that number even further at the 4.5 hectare site. With your help, they aim to plant a staggering 3,000 trees on the day!
Grab your gardening gloves and bring the family to The Hill Mountain Bike Park, 23-31 Newcastle St, Newtown, Sunday 29th July from 9:30am. Lions Club will be there with a BBQ and hot drinks. Meet other like-minded people, fun for all the family! (If you’re not a cyclist, parking is available onsite and along Newcastle Street.)
