Bingara Preschoolers get their hands dirty for National Tree Day

August 7, 2015

National Tree Day, which was held Australia wide last Sunday week, is Australia’s largest community tree-planting and nature care event.

It is Australia’s version of Arbor Day, a holiday initiative celebrated around the world by people with respect for trees and their communities.

Bingara pre-school took part in this year’s event by getting down and dirty digging holes and planting trees in support of the day. The pre-schoolers planted cherry trees, a white mulberry and a passionfruit vine for National Tree Day and the Bingara Advocate was very impressed with their planting skills when they were invited down to join in on the planting celebrations.

Trees evoke fond memories in many of us. We climb them, we take shelter beneath their branches, they provide a home to many of our native wildlife and play a vital role in the ecosystem.

These tree will no doubt bring about fond memories and path the way to lifelong learning about the importance of respecting and nurturing nature for the Bingara Preschoolers.
