Sunshine Coast Council and Make it Stop Committee invite you to take part in this special tree planting event in an act of solidarity and support for victims of domestic and family violence.

This event comes as the international 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign commences on Saturday 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs through to Sunday 10 December, Human Rights Day. The campaign theme of Love ≠ Control is shining a light on coercive control. The topic of coercive control is being discussed more openly and is considered to be just as heinous as physical or sexual violence.

Everyone is welcome to help raise public awareness of domestic and family violence in our community. The 500 native ground covers planted on our dunes will act as a lasting legacy to acknowledge victims of domestic and family violence on the Sunshine Coast as well as rehabilitating and building resilience in our coastal dunes.

Experience in planting is not necessary. We will have helpful staff to show you how. Drop in, stay for the whole time, plant 1 or plant many, it’s up to you. You will also help to feed and water them.

  • Planting activity 7:30 - 8:45am
  • Morning tea provided by Alexandra Headland Suf Life Saving Club and team photo: 8:45 - 9:30am (maybe earlier - when all the ground covers are planted)

Free Event. Registration is essential.
