Free Tree Society Kuala Lumpur is an environmental organisation that spreads the environmental stewardship message through giving away trees for free to green our Earth. Since 2013, we have given away over 33,000 plants to homeowners, schools, marginalised groups, community gardens and wildlife habitats to proliferate planting, to encourage biodiversity and to promote a love of nature.
Under the umbrella of environmental stewardship and environmental awareness, waste management, rainwater harvesting, gardening and biodiversity are some of the topics that we regularly engage with visitors and volunteers. Activities are hands-on and our outdoor classroom is a world class facility.
Free Tree Society promotes the implementation of United Nations instruments and global goals on environmental issues, sustainable development, climate change, and responsible consumption and production.
As we grow our plants sustainably they need lots of care. Nursery management is always needed to move pots, sort plants, re-potting, propagate, and more! Fertilising with our chemical free range of products makes sure our plants are all nourished and grow quickly. Weeding and pruning ensures our plants look fabulous! Water the plants and check for pests!
We provide all the tools and equipment. Volunteers are advised to wear clothes and shoes suitable for outdoor gardening work. Volunteers should bring their own mosquito repellent, sunscreen, hat and change of clothing. An umbrella or poncho may be required.
An ethos of being green and sustainable underpins all activities. When you attend our nursery, kindly try to:
Travel Green – travel via public transport or car pooling
Manage Your Waste – recycle on site, compost, think zero waste
F&B – bring your own water bottle; if catering, consider vegetarian food; ensure no plastic disposables (e.g. straws, cutlery and mineral water).
