Below are some ideas on how individuals, organisations and Rotary Clubs have adopted trees.
We'd love to hear if you have any new ideas!
Many trees have been adopted to give to family and friends, especially Grandchildren.
This is a wonderful way for young children to see the impact of growing trees within Australia. They also have an opportunity to find out some interesting facts about the trees that they have adopted.
What better gift for the future ....
Some organisations have adopted trees for their business.
A wonderful example is the adoption of 100 trees by the TELEAUS Corporation through Ingleburn Rotary.
What a great way to make a contribution to the future.
This is also a wonderful opportunity for businesses to become involved with their local Rotary Clubs and find out about Rotary's great community work.
A great way to get involved in your local school community.
Once trees have been adopted you can engage with the school in a number of ways:
~ Invite a local garden or wildflower nursery representative to the school to show the students how to harvest seeds ~
~ Help each student plant a seed and watch it grow into a sapling,over 6 months ~
~ Help the school establish a garden ~
~ Present each school with a sapling so they can take care of it and watch it grow ~
~ Contact local Council to see if the school can be involved in any upcoming tree planting days ~
Berry Rotary Club has recently placed flyers in the Berry IGA to hand out to customers.
Since doing so, there has been a significant increase in tree adoptions from the Berry area!
This is also a great opportunity for local Rotary Clubs to create relationships with local businesses
Many Rotary Clubs are purchasing large numbers of trees to make a donation and to show their support for the environment
Many Rotary Clubs are adopting trees and presenting a certificate to their Guest Speakers.
Not only does this promote tree adoption it shows how Rotary works to improve their environment in a practical way.
Taking photos of Guest Speakers and sharing on social media also spreads the word encouraging others to also adopt a tree.
This Project has been supported by a Seeding Grant from the National Australia Day Council
Rotary acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of lands where we live, learn and work. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
