Mother Nurture - Activate Saplings Fundraiser

Date: Sun 12 May
Time: 2-6pm
Location: Perth City Farm, 1 City Farm Place, East Perth.

Stay up to date by following the Activate Saplings Facebook page.

Forget your tame brunch plans! Celebrate your mum and your other mother (Mother Nature) this Mother’s Day with a special outdoor concert to support the planting of 30,000 seedlings in August 2024.

You will hear from talented young musicians and storytellers of all ages in the Perth City Farm community garden, sharing stories of who we are and what we envision, and celebrating the loving, nurturing force of our mother figures. Other highlights of the event will be kids activities, a raffle of eco-conscious prizes, delicious home-made finger food, and a bar serving delightful tipples from local sponsors.

Perth City Farm is a hub of sustainability education; we are proud to say that Activate grew out of PCF over 20 years ago and are grateful to have the use of the garden for our venue, which has been so lovingly created and tended.

Where will the funds go?
All funds raised will support the Activate Saplings tree-planting festival in August 2024, which is entirely volunteer-run. All trees and planting equipment have been funded and provided through partnership with Carbon Positive and Trillion Trees Australia. Funds raised at the Mother Nurture event will pay for food, logistics and transport costs, and other festival equipment; as well as lowering the access barrier for young and/or disadvantaged people to attend our event through lower ticket prices.

What is Activate Saplings?
Activate Saplings is the youth division of Activate Tree Planting. We’re a bunch of twenty-somethings with a focus on empowering young people to take environmental action, use and develop their skills for a better future, and create community wherever they are in life.
