Rainbow Corroboree and Tree Planting event

400 Trees - The Journey to Tabulam (part 1 of 4)

In March 2011, with support from the Byron Movement, 20 people from Byron Bay took 20 fruit trees each, to plant an orchard of 400 fruiting trees near the Rocky River in Tabulam Aboriginal Reserve. The tree planting event coincided with the JULINBAH YOWARL Rainbow Corroboree hosted by Bundjalung tribe elder Lewis Walker. Local residents and visitors contributed to digging and planting the 400 trees.
