Grants to schools for native trees and shrubs

Cabramatta West Public student Makayla tends to the school’s native garden, funded by the Tree Levy

Applications are now being accepted for Federation’s annual grants scheme, the Tree Levy.

The scheme aims to offset the environmental impact of the union’s activities via a notional levy on the paper used by Federation. This provides funding for the purchase of native trees and native shrubs for planting in public school grounds.

The Tree Levy helps the environment, improves our public schools and positively promotes the union in the local community. Schools are invited each year to submit an application for a grant of up to $500 to purchase native trees and shrubs.
