Community planting fun

Come and lend a helping hand with our Friends Groups at one of the upcoming planting days. 

Planting days are a great way to meet new people from your local community, while helping to revegetate some of our favourite Freo parks and reserves.  

These events are kid-friendly and great for all ages. 


Friends of Samson Park

Saturday 21 May, 9.30–11.30

Come and give the Friends of Samson Park a hand as they plant 1200 seedlings. 

They'll have the ground prepared, the seedlings organised and a great crew of people to show you how and where to plant.

There will also be a special brunch organised for afterwards to celebrate the day's work.  

Meeting location: Notice board on Sellenger Avenue, Samson

Friends of Booyeembara Park 

9am Saturday 27 May 

Join the Friends of Booyeembara Park for this upcoming planting day!

Boo Park was a former landfill site in the 1960s through to the 1980s but you'd never know it thanks to the revegetation works to transform it into the well-loved community park it is today. 

The planting day kicks off at 9am – be sure to check out the recently opened Booyeembara Park Mountain Bike Trails while you're there.

Meeting location: Walk through the olive grove from Montreal Street and meet near the storytelling circle.
