YANCHEP Community Centre and the Envirobees volunteers launched a “Let’s go green 2016” program recently with a garden swap.

Held at Yanchep Community Garden, the May 25 event encouraged people to bring seeds, saplings, fruit, vegetables and other produce to swap and share.

The Envirobees group advocates for “greening up” the neighbourhood and the program includes community activities focused on simple, positive environmental actions.

The series will feature winter planting co-ordinated by the City of Wanneroo’s conservation team, including planting at Leisure Park in Yanchep on June 14 from 3-5pm.

It is also promoting the Plastic Free July campaign, supported by Mindarie Regional Council and will hold a verge tree information session at Yanchep Community Centre on August 1.

Other activities include clean-ups for Keep Australia Beautiful Week, sustainability workshops, spring guided walks, beach clean-ups for Tangaroa Blue and the Garage Sale Trail.
