Lunchtime tree planting

If you have 15 minutes to spare during your lunch break next Tuesday, October 20, consider planting a tree at Slaters Creek in North Lismore. From 10.30am till 2pm, a Sustainable Urban Business community tree planting day gives workers a chance to help improve the condition of their local catchment.

Organised by Lismore City Council and the Sustainable Urban Business Project, the tree planting marks the beginning of a major creek rehabilitation project which will be undertaken over the next year as part of a local Reconnecting to Country Project.

“Everyone is welcome,” organiser Vanessa Talon said. “There will be enough time to have a bite to eat and plant a tree in your lunch break.”

The planting site is located at the LCC reserve near the corner of Exton and Bridge Streets, just past the Northern Rivers Hotel. A free BBQ will be provided for all participants.

For further information on the community tree planting day or on the Sustainable Urban Business Project in general please contact Vanessa on 1300 878 387.
