Timing, they say, is everything. Just ask the staff at Beerwah Library as they prepare to host a native plant sale on Monday June 6 from 10am to noon - a day after World Environment Day.
Caloundra City Mayor, Don Aldous, said the sale - which will take place at the library and comprise a selection of native plants from Mooloolah Native Nursery - provides an ideal opportunity for residents to nurture their local environment.
"It seems fitting that this native plant sale takes place a day after World Environment Day - a day dedicated to stimulating awareness of the environment on the worldwide stage," Cr Aldous said.
Established in 1972 at the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment by the United Nations General Assembly and celebrated each year on June 5, World Environment Day is celebrated in over 100 countries.
"At the local level, even doing something as seemingly small as purchasing and planting a native plant can make a difference to the environment," Cr Aldous said.
"Council is committed to spreading the message about just how easy it is to do something positive for the environment."
Mooloolah Native Nursery staff will be on hand at the sale to answer any planting-related questions. For more information contact Beerwah Library [Peachester Road, Beerwah] on 5494 0221.
