Out in the Field
Depot Working Bee
Help to prepare growing kits at one of our working bees. You’ll be involved in washing tubes and packing the growing kits. A free light lunch will follow the day’s work. We have our working bees at the Kensington Stockyards.
Attend Urban Plantings Days
Come along and help us plant. Enjoy a ‘Blissful Sunday’ along the Yarra River between Clifton Hill and Thomastown. Plantings begin at 10:00 till around 3:00, TreeProject provide a BBQ lunch for everyone (including vegetarians and vegans).These planting days re-establish bushland around park entrances, provide bird habitat, and replace exotic vegetation. Note: remember to bring some sturdy shoes and all weather gear.
Attend Rural Plantings Days
Sometimes landholders request help to plant their seedlings. These opportunities are sporadic but if you tick this option on the Volunteer Registration Form you will receive an E-Mail when an opportunity occurs.
Work in the Nursery
Help us propagate extra seedlings as back-up stock for our volunteers. This often involves transplanting seedlings, filling extra tubes, and helping to take care of some of the seedlings grown by TreeProject for the revegetation of fire affected areas.
Helping With Tree Project Management
I’d like to join a Sub-Committee: This is a 12 month commitment. Our sub-committees work as a team, with a committee member, on strategic areas that strengthen TreeProject, such as:
- TreeProject Operations
- Events and Fundraising
- Business Development
