Kambarang Festival Update
 

Come along to the Kambarang Festival being held at Weeip Park and the LoCale in Midland on Saturday 30th October from 1pm to 8pm! This is a family friendly event with activities, performances and stalls for everyone to enjoy.

Trillion Trees has been working with the City of Swan and the local Noongar people to develop an inspiring festival that brings people together to Heal Country, Restore Nature and Reconnect Community. Kambarang (also known as the season of birth) is the fifth Noongar season which begins in October. It's a time of warmer weather, wildflowers blossoming and the birth of native fauna.

The festival aims to bring the community together through art, nature, entertainment, and education. Numerous singers and entertainers will perform during the afternoon in the LoCale, including Richard Walley and the Six Seasons Band. Puppetry artist Karen Hethey has been working on an eco-cultural project with Moordjit Noongar Community College and Woodbridge Primary School to create a large-scale puppetry performance. The Perth Symphony Orchestra will perform in collaboration with Noongar Artist Natasha Eldridge to perform songs in Noongar language relevant to Kambarang. There will also be various exhibitors and stall holders promoting the ethos of the event.

Welcome Janani!
 

The Trillion Trees team is pleased to have Janani on board as an intern from the University of Western Australia. Janani is assisting our Board Member Annie and CEO Denise in organising the Kambarang festival being held in late October. Janani is studying podiatric medicine and is part of the McCusker internship program that focuses on providing people with the opportunity to give back to the community.

Janani says "I am super excited to be part of such an integral and established organisation such as Trillion Trees. Its value of restoring nature lies extremely close to my heart".

Planting Season Update
 
Our busy planting season has continued throughout July and into August. We have had some very dedicated corporate volunteer groups from Rio Tinto and Data 3 as well as a lovely group from the Shree Swaminarayan Temple planting with us at Whiteman Park. 

We also held our second community planting weekend on the 7th and 8th of August. Thanks to everyone who came along and put in a great effort! Another thanks to the wonderful CWA Midland Branch for their fantastic morning tea and lunch!
Waanginy Boorna Issue 1
 
Our amazing Trillion Trees School’s program leader John has just published the first edition of our new magazine- Waanginy Boorna. This biannual magazine is designed to provide students involved in the schools program topical information relevant to our common objectives. It also provides students with an avenue to share their experiences, thoughts and actions in our quest to heal our planet by growing trees.

The Noongar people traditionally used the waanginy boorna (message stick) to invite nations together. We invite all students to come together to celebrate their involvement with Trillion Trees Schools whilst honouring the significance of the Noongar nation and its living culture.

The Message stick was sent out into the country by the hand of a runner. This message was an invitation to all the nations to attend a great waarna (ceremony). A message for all people to come together in one place, at one time for a ceremony; a gathering for all to share!

Our invitation to all our member schools is to share their experiences, thoughts and action, in our quest to heal our planet by growing trees, by contributing to our magazine Waanginy Boorna.

A world audit of trees in 2015 shows there are just 3 trillion trees left in the world - that's half what there used to be. 

We, as a global community, need a new tree planting target - to plant 1 trillion trees! If each person in the world plants 140 trees, we will achieve this!
