Marriott Waters community teams up for National Tree Day
Villawood Properties master-planned development ‘Marriott Waters’ has received a green thumbs-up from the local community, following the estate’s involvement with Planet Ark’s National Tree Day on Sunday 2 August.
Residents of the estate and members of the local community gathered at Marriott Waters and, with the aid of a City of Casey council representatives joined forces to get their hands dirty planting 350 trees towards an environmentally friendly future.
The volunteers effectively transformed one of Marriott Waters open reserves into what will become a lush, green haven for the ample wildlife already calling the estate’s wetlands home.
The hard-working volunteers were treated to a free barbeque provided by the CFA following the tree planting exercise, as well as a visit from ‘Waddles the Platypus’, the Villawood mascot who was busy helping kids plant throughout the day.
