Guys - Don't let the ladies do the hard yakka
You’ve heard of speed dating, well this is speed planting. If you want to try something new, fun and environmental register soon. Plant a new tree with a new person every eight minutes then join everyone over a free tasty bbq lunch. Even if you don’t meet your match, at least you will feel fantastic having done something for the environment. Women's places are now full - women's names now go on a waiting list unless you can bring along a single male friend to keep the numbers even.
Where: Wetlands Centre, Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve, Dairy Road, Fyshwick - an extension of Newcastle Street. Look for the Greening Australia signs.
