Community Tree Planting

Let's take our souls 
       for a morning in the bush
And gathering our planters
          in open spaces
          ask them to 'dig'
Let's bring water, trowels, family and friends
      as signs of care
And when we're done 
     listen to
          the saplings sing

A planting day with Men of the Trees Queensland and Habitat Brisbane.

Many thanks to the Scouts who put on a BBQ afterwards and to all the planters.

Remembering Mr Richard St Barbe Barker.
