Hi Baby Tree Projects,

I am a teacher from Kooweerup Secondary College and I am looking to make my home group more aware of the world around them and how lucky they are to have an education. My friends volunteered for Baby Tree recently and it sounds like a project that I could get them involved in through fundraising.

Any tips or resources would be great.
