FFDC National Tree Day Event - 2017


In perfect winter weather conditions we had another hugely successful planting event in Manson’s Reserve in Wantirna on National Tree Day Sunday 30 July.

Over 120 volunteers and members planted 3000 plus plants including trees, shrubs and grasses in just over hour. This is probably the biggest turn out in terms of numbers in the history of planting events organised by FFDC

A big thank you to Anthony Bigelow and Matt McCabe for helping organise such a successful event. Thanks also to committee members Bill Jones, Vicky Pearse, Barbara Richards and Lex Edmond for their efforts on the day. A big thank you also to the McFarlane family for organising the BBQ that was enjoyed by everyone. There was nothing left over.

A big thank you to the Craig, Karen and Derek for their work in preparing the sites and their efforts on the day.

Finally, thanks again to the Box Hill Buddhist group. Without their contribution of 70 plus volunteers we would not be able to plant as many plants.
