Get Planting Cockburn

The Get Planting Cockburn project was made possible with a grant from the Local Projects, Local Jobs fund administered by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. In 2018 The City of Cockburn received funding for $100,000 worth of native trees to be planted in Cockburn over the next three years.

Community members will have the chance to plant an additional 4,000 trees in the Cockburn landscape, over and above the 10ha already earmarked for planting by the City until 2020.
