About this event

Join Greater Sydney Landcare Network and Landcare NSW for a day of tree planting at Fairfield Hospital!

We’re creating an urban forest on the Hospital grounds for habitat and to provide a restorative environment for locals.

Green spaces aren’t just great for urban ecosystems, they’re also associated with better physical health, lower stress levels, and greater community satisfaction. Now’s your chance to get involved with creating this healing space in your neighbourhood.
