As a part of Australia’s National Tree Day, BAPS centres in Adelaide (15 June), Brisbane (20 July), Melbourne (29 July) and Sydney (29 July) participated in Tree Plantation Drives in their local communities.
Enthusiastic BAPS volunteers of all ages participated, despite chilly winter weather, and planted more than 1,400 trees all together. The volunteers joined with local government departments and other charitable and non-profit organizations to dig the pits and plant trees at the various sites selected by the local authorities in each city for the tree-planting campaigns. A variety of Australian native plants are chosen for plantation, such as, ferns, wattles and banksias.
BAPS volunteers also assisted in the registration process for this event.
