This years Improve your Plant/Life Balance (PLB) message of ‘More Trees Please’ (MTP) was both well represented and received on National Tree Day at the City of Sydney media site.
Planet Ark provided NGIA both space and a marquee for the day were we could promote both our PLB and MTP messages to all those in attendance on the day. Tree plantings were carried out on the day by both the public and also Lord Mayor Clover Moore who was also in attendance.
Our PLB stand was very ‘hands-on’ with plugs of Dianella being potted up by visitors into biodegradable pots (supplied by Ramm Botanicals) which they could then take home to grow.
The ambassador for National Tree Day this year was the Lorax who added a bit of colour and fun to the event, especially for the children in attendance. For those not familiar with The Lorax, it is a Dr Seuss character who is the ‘protector of the trees’.
