This National Tree Day, Planet Ark and Toyota are giving you a chance to WIN a $7,500 garden makeover for your local community. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to bring some nature into your local area.
Whether it is a herb garden, or a vertical garden or some colourful natives, it is up to you to decide.
To enter the competition, all you have to do is;

- Post a National Tree day photo on your Facebook and/or Instagram with #NTD2016
- Tell us in 25 words or less, how $7,500 from Toyota would assist your nature care community garden project!
"The most creative and inspiring entry will win!"
Through this 17-year National Tree Day partnership, Planet Ark and Toyota have planted over 23 million trees. Over the past few years, research conducted by Planet Ark and sponsored by Toyota Australia has shown the many benefits of spending time in nature. For example, our latest research Adding Trees - A Prescription for Health, Happiness and Fulfilment - found that just 10 minutes a day surrounded by natyre can make us feel better.
Good luck with your entries! We look forward to seeing your creative ideas and how the garden transforms your commuity.
