Celebration and Farewell for the park gum trees

Wednesday, 20 February 2019 from 17:30-19:00

Kris Schaffer will lead sharing and storytelling at Fern Tree’s Big Trees to celebrate & farewell the two large gum trees. Sadly these two giants near St Raphaels Church are unsafe and will be removed in preparation for the park redevelopment. Share your stories and memories of Fern Tree and these trees in the park. Share a silent or spoken acknowledgement of Palawa place.

The Community Centre will be open for a cuppa after about 6.30pm.
