It was a beautiful winter morning when 30 adults and children including TCA members and friends planted over 260 trees and plants in Bluey Hill Park on National Tree Day, 31 July 2016. The kick off to the Tumbulgum Celebrates 150 Years activities was a great community building project and one that will leave a lasting, living legacy.
Jacqui Paine guided our planting and gave a talk about the plants, all representative of the original riparian rainforest that would have existed in the area in 1866. The activity was sponsored by Tweed Shire Council and Planet Ark. We celebrated afterwards with damper cooked onsite. Thanks to The Bearded Baker for providing the damper mix. Delicious with a dab of golden syrup and a cup of tea!
