Beach day free plant giveaway
CAIRNS Regional Council will be celebrating the Carnivale Beach Day on Saturday with a free plant giveaway to local residents.
All you have to do is visit the council stall on the Esplanade and receive your free plant, with 10 species to choose from includ- ing assorted palms, bottle brush, beach lilies and edge plants.
All the plants are native to the Far North so are suitable to the climate and soil types of the region.
The council team will be at the council marquee from 8am-2pm.
Council is also offering green thumbs free mulch from the waste transfer stations at Newell Beach and Killaloe from Friday.
The free mulch will be available at the depots until Monday or until stocks run out.
