Event description
Join us in planting a native tree in memory of those who have lost their lives to domestic and family violence.

About this Event

Sunshine Coast Make it Stop Committee and Sunshine Coast Council invite you to take part in this special tree planting event in an act of solidarity and support for victims of domestic violence.

It comes as the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls kicks off on Wednesday 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until Thursday 10 December – Human Rights Day.

Everyone is welcome to help raise public awareness of domestic and family violence in our community. The 500 native trees, shrubs and groundcovers planted on our dunes will act as a lasting legacy to acknowledge victims of domestic and family violence on the Sunshine Coast as well as rehabilitating and building resilience in our coastal dunes.

Experience in planting is not necessary. We will have helpful staff to show you how. All participants will be able to plant 1 - 2 plants each. Our plants will also get a feed and water and some may need some protection and you may be asked to install a tree guard.

Free Event. Registration is essential. Event capacity of 300 people.

When

The event runs between 7:30 to 9:30am. To assist us in managing social distancing and a speedy check-in process on the day we have staggered our start times every 15 minutes. First session time starts at 7:30am with the final one at 9:15am. Select your preferred start time upon registration.

What to bring

Tools and materials for the planting activity are provided. Please wear sturdy enclosed shoes, be sun safe and bring your own water bottle.
