ADASA Supported Bio·R Frahns Farm Planting Festival

This June, the ADASA Environmental Sustainability Committee is hosting a tree planting day in the Mt Lofty Ranges.

Join our community

We would like to invite you to bring along your staff for a great team building exercise, or your friends and family for a fun and rewarding day out.

This is a great opportunity to give back to nature while meeting members of the dental profession in South Australia.

ADASA has partnered with Bio·R, who are a South Australian-based grassroots charity that reconstructs habitats to support native wildlife. Bio·R, and hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers, will be coming together over 6 days in June to plant habitat for wildlife as part of an exciting restoration initiative at Frahns Farm near Monarto.

Registration is free and catering will be provided.
