EVENT WEBSITELEARN MORE
Free Tree Society Kuala Lumpur is based on very simple principles – we take seeds, we sprout them, we look after the seedlings, then we give away healthy little plants to the public for free on environmental holidays!
Through this act of giving away plants for free we hope to encourage a whole host of other green goals and objectives, such as to:
– Increase and improve the suburban and city greenscape;
– Educate people on the correct way to plant and care for trees;
– Increase peoples’ awareness of environmental holidays;
– Encourage a love of local plants; and
– Establish a dedicated plant society where like-minded city greenies can come together for the love of plants and grow and nurture seedlings in a sustainable and environmentally conscious manner.
Volunteers are welcome to come to our nursery to help out. We have volunteer sessions on Tuesdays (9:30 am – 11:30 am) and Saturdays (9 am – 12 pm). Volunteers do a variety of tasks from propagating new plants to gardening and landscaping. All tools are provided – you may like to wear mosquito repellant and sunscreen – also, bring a hat and wear sensible outdoor shoes. Big groups of over 6 pax should please contact us in advance and book a day to visit.
Parents are responsible for their children (please note there are sharp tools, fertilizers, a pond and open drains on-site).
Volunteers are the backbone behind Free Tree Society – the more we plant the more we can give away, so if you’d like more giveaways, do come and help us out one day! No experience necessary.
