Planting the seeds of success for National Tree Day 2022
To celebrate National Tree Day 2022, Adelaide Hills Council's Open Space staff teamed up with Torrens Valley Lions Club and Gumeracha Primary School for a day of tree planting and fun on July 31st. The group worked together to continue the revegetation project along the banks of Kenton Creek at Federation Park. Catering for the day was provided by Torrens Valley Lions Club and Hall Committee.
The project, now in it's third year, is extremely beneficial for the region. Our Open Space staff, together with the support of these generous community groups planted another 200 tubestock, adding to the total of 1150 native trees, shrubs, and grasses in and around the creekline habitats in Federation Park. This added valuable understorey to the magnificent gum trees that have stood in Federation Park for over 200 years.
Council was very fortunate to be joined by Kaurna man, Mickey O’Brien, who performed a Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony, while imparting some fascinating cultural knowledge from the local area.
