The Seedling Bank

Planet Ark – ‘The Seedling Bank’

Current Grants, Newsletters, The Scoop

Grants open until 25 February 2022

Planet Ark’s National Tree Day team launched ‘The Seedling Bank’ in 2019 to give communities and schools the funds they need to put seedlings in the ground.
The program builds on the success of Australia’s largest tree planting and nature care event, which has seen over 26 million trees planted since 1996.
NB: Planting events do not need to take place on National Tree Day (28 – 30 June), big and small events are supported all year round.
