Shade trees group joins environment group
The Grow Urban Shade Trees group has joined the Peninsula Environment Group.
It will join the Woy Woy Community Garden as a sub-group of the environment group.
The tree group was previously auspiced by the Umina Community Group.
"We would like to thank the Umina Community Group for their support over the past four years which helped GUST complete several grant projects for street tree planting," said group member Ms Melissa Chandler.
She said the environment group's focus aligned with the tree group's activities.
"PEG's focus is sustainable living in the Peninsula areaf.
"We feel inspired by what PEG members have achieved by way of caring for our local environment and being a voice for local issues that threaten our landscape and way of living.
"Thank you PEG for being the tree that strengthens our growth."
As a result of the move, the tree group has a new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ms Chandler said that now was the season to be planting trees.
"Summer feels like a distant memory but to establish shade trees for the future, we need to be planting now."
She said: "GUST is nothing without the support of the community, so please get in touch if you are looking to plant a tree in your verge."
