Time for Tree

Let us all bring out our gardening tools and plant a sapling this National Tree Day on 29th July, 2018. Celebrated on the last Sunday of July, the day was started in Australia by the non-profit Planet Ark, in 1996. It has become the largest nature care and tree-planting event in Australia since then with over 3.8 million people having planted 24 million trees in the last 22 years.
