    Frequesntl asked questions

    Q: Can I bring my dog? Sorry, we are planting in a State forest so no dogs allowed.

    Q: Do we need to bring shovels, tools etc? No, we provide all tools necessary. Just take note of the clothing suggestions.

    Q: Is it possible to plant during the week, rather than weekends? We have school students planting during the week and therefore all adults require a valid Working with Children Check. If you have a WWC card, we may be able to accommodate a weekday. Just send us an email.

    Q: What times do the sessions start? The morning and afternoon session check-in is at the Ludlow mill compound, 21 Ludlow Road North. Morning (8.30am) and afternoon (12.30pm). Both sessions are 2-3 hours.

    Q: I do not drive. Is it possible to be collected by someone please? Yes, we can do a local pick up and will phone you to discuss.
