East Derwent Primary School tree planting day

by Brighton Council
Mel Fazackerly from Derwent Catchment Project

The recent tree planting day at East Derwent Primary School was a suc­cess, with Brighton Council support­ing a $2,000 grant to plant mature trees and provide natural shade at the school.

Mayor Leigh Gray started proceed­ings with a ribbon cutting ceremo­ny with the students, which was followed by the planting of Tasma­nian blackwoods. There was much enthusiasm from the children, with the kindergarten class fascinated by the worms in the freshly dug soil!

The finished trees

At the end of the event, each child received a seedling to take home and plant in their own garden. A wonderful day spent outside, work­ing as a community.
