Plant a tree this Sunday and win!

There is still plenty of time to plant a tree this Sunday, check out the many places in your area to plant trees and rsvp online. So take your spouse, kids, siblings, grandparents and whoever you can find and come along this Sunday!

In May 2012, Planet Ark developed a report, sponsored by Toyota Australia, focusing on the benefits of interaction with nature for children's health, wellbeing and development. The report, Planting Trees: Just What The Doctor Ordered, builds on a 2011 study commissioned by Planet Ark that showed a dramatic and worrying shift in childhood activity in Australia from outdoor play to indoor activity in the space of one generation.

Toyota Australia has sent me a $100 Bunnings Warehouse gift voucher to share with one of my Australian readers to purchase and plant native trees, shrubs and grasses in our local area.

So if you are living in Perth please leave a comment on this post, tell us what your favorite native tree is and where you live and I will do a random pick on Sunday and will post the winner.

    I love the wattle tree with it's pretty yellow flowers which also smell delicious.
