“Bridge Club’s environmental actions towards safe and clean Earth
Setting up BC environmental action stations”
One Home, One Tree, is a project aimed to inspire, engage and enable young people to take individual action toward living sustainably. By planting a tree, somewhere in their urban environment, every young person engaged in the project can connect to their environment and in turn connect with the issues related to sustainability in cities.
Bridge Club partnered with Urban Reforestation, a local Melbourne not for profit organisation, to deliver the project. Urban Reforestation is a local and global sustainable design project. Their aim is to inspire and enable sustainable everyday lifestyles and they do this by:
- Providing a public garden and sustainable living centre to the people of the Docklands
- Offering engaging sustainable lifestyles action-education programs, workshops and events
- Providing dynamic sustainability services.
Urban Reforestation is based in Victoria Harbour , Docklands , Victoria , Australia .
On the 20th February 2011, BCA members meet and launched the One Home One Tree Project at a tree planting event at the Urban Reforestation Garden at the Docklands.
The Day was a great success and every child that attended helped plant a tree and also took home planted seeds to grow at home.
After we planted the tree we had a BBQ, we even cooked some veggies we picked from the garden and picked herbs to garnish our sausages.
The project was advertised on Urban Goes Green – a Dockland TV program and also in the Docklands Newspaper.
