Melville school kids be doing their bit in the International Year of Plant Health as they will have the opportunity to attend a two day Green Lab workshop as part of a Millennium Kids initiative with the support of a $10,000 grant from the City of Melville.
Green Lab is a youth led citizen science and action program designed by 500 young people concerned about the need to protect trees in urban landscapes across Perth.
With Traditional Owners, climate scientists, poets, artists, historians, community stakeholders and government, kids will help us love our trees, increase tree canopy and strengthen the ecosystems trees support.
Using education, community planting and monitoring programs kids will develop a network of Green Labs across the city, creating a cooler climate and habitat for native birds and animals.
