Planting a tree is often a child’s first act of volunteering for the benefit of our entire community. Let’s leave the municipality in better condition than what we inherited. Let’s plant a tree for every child and enjoy watching the trees grow as our children grow!
In 2016, Council commenced its involvement in the “One Tree Per Child” project with the aim of planting a plant for each person aged under 18 in our municipality. Council will plant an indigenous plant for each person aged under 18 in our municipality. That’s 16,664 plants per year for five years!
Help Greater Shepparton grow into a greener, happier community
Founded by Olivia Newton-John and Jon Dee, and building on the highly successful National Tree Day, the project aims to plant 20 million trees for 20 million children by 2020 worldwide.
Council’s community planting events will occur at dates to be confirmed between April and October 2017 (weather permitting) at 100 Kittles Road, Shepparton. We will provide a free BBQ lunch!
Council would like to invite schools, Landcare, businesses and community groups to get involved by organising a planting event in partnership with us. Contact us to discuss your options or head to the National Tree Day and One Tree Per Child websites for further information.
