Wyndham City are giving away trees to Wyndham’s Residents!
We will have 500 trees of varying species to give to residents to plant at home.
To grab your free tree, come along to the National Tree Day on Sunday 28 July 2019 (10am - 1pm) in the floodway reserve next to 101 Bellbridge Drive, Hoppers Crossing.
Residents are welcome to join us on National Tree Day to partake in activities, enjoy a sausage sizzle and chat to Wyndham City Council staff for advice on how to plant your free tree and general maintenance tips. There will be a variety of species to choose from, however stock will be limited so make sure you arrive early to avoid missing out.
Also make sure you check out the compost and worm farm displays by Council’s Waste Education team on the day.
