First 1048 trees in the ground

First shot

First community planting complete

of yesterday's community tree planting. We have a mountain of photos to sort, but in the meantime, here are half way through and the gang at finish. We had 25 volunteers plant 1048 trees in 90 minutes flat. Connie and myself would like to say that we cannot think of a better bunch of people to have spent the morning with, and a massive shout out to the Cow Bay Hotel - Daintree for providing such a pleasant 'watering hole' for thirsty planters afterwards, and for managers, Connie Bon and Tony C for providing a free sausage sizzle for us all. So many people to thank, so here goes: Sue D, David Carey, mayor, Julia Leu, Kelvin Davies, Luke C, Mike B, Bennett Louise Walker, Gaylene S, Laurene Hull, Didge M, David J, Jase MaGiver, Sally Jansen, Suzanne L, Julie Robertson, John Benfer, Nikki R, Liz, Fuchsia, Zeuriah, Bronson and Jess Denz. Also, a special thank you to the weather for providing an extremely localised and perfectly timed rain shower after planting, and for local Allan W for so generously giving up his time - who arrived in the afternoon with water tank and pump to really water them in well. And to Jess, Jase, David and Sally who came back in the afternoon to help water - you are all legends. Awesome day. Awesome result. The first of many.
