The collaboration between the Town, the Vic Park Collective and Vic Park Transition Network organised the Bring One, Get One Tree program that ran in local caf�s last year � for every reusable cup used, the caf� would put a marble in a jar with each marble representing one tree to be planted.

The tree planting will now take place.

Town chief executive Anthony Vuleta said it was a fantastic joint effort by everyone involved.

�Initiatives like this help the Town of Victoria Park to achieve its mission to be environmentally sustainable via the delivery of our Environment Plan 2013-2018,� he said.
