Planting Day

The annual planting day is one of the Grow West’s biggest events, attracting over 200 volunteers and planting over 4,000 native trees and shrubs in the one day. The event is a great important opportunity to rejuvenate and restore local landscapes for a greener and brighter future.

This annual event is run in partnership with Port Phillip and Westernport CMA – Grow West Program, Victorian National Park Association, Friends of Werribee Gorge and Long Forest Mallee, Bacchus Marsh Lions Club, Victorian Mobile Landcare Group,  Bacchus Marsh Community Bank, Melbourne Water, Southern Rural Water, Moorabool Shire Council and various other sponsoring organisations.
