Get Involved - give the region a helping hand

Look here for a calendar of upcoming planting days or beach clean ups, what to bring and how to register so you can get involved!

Planting Days

Community planting days are great ways to make a difference to our environment – they’re fun, good exercise and pretty social!

Registering for planting days isn’t compulsory but you will help us to know how many people will be there so we can organise enough gear, keep you up to date with how your plants are thriving and let you know about future events.
