Birth Tree

Rotary Frankston Peninsula 2.0 invites you to celebrate the birth of your child with your community. Now in its fourth year, the Birth Tree Project is an opportunity to honour this special milestone in a truly unique way. 

Each year, Rotary Frankston Peninsula 2.0, in conjunction with Frankston City Council will plant one tree to commemorate the births of children in our community. Their names will be placed on a plaque at the base of the Birth Tree. 

What’s more, we will also host an annual Unveiling Ceremony on the 17th of March 2019 to mark the occasion. This event will bring together family and friends in an afternoon of fun. Children will be given a certificate and their very own tree to take home and plant.

The Birth Tree will be planted at Montague Park (Kars St, Frankston), in a specially designed garden space dedicated to the Birth Tree Project. Registration for births in 2018 closes in January 2019.

All you need to do is make a donation of $50 for one newborn. Your contribution goes directly to supporting the Frankston Hospital Special Care Nursery.

Register today and share the joy of your new arrival with those who care the most: your friends and family.

Our Birth Tree & Family Garden Projects also supports the Birth Tree Little Library at Montague Park.

Rotary Peninsula 2.0 will plant one tree for each year at Montague Park (Kars St, Frankston), to celebrate the birth of children born in the Frankston community.
A plaque with the name of all registered children will be placed at the base of their ’Birth Tree’, with an annual Unveiling Ceremony to celebrate these births.

The Frankston City Council has approved at 10 year landscaping plan for Montague Park in Frankston.  Each year, a specific garden bed (approx 8m in diameter) will be dedicated to babies born in that year.  This garden bed will include small shrubs and flowers, with the Birth Tree (Acer Negundo ‘Sensation’) in the centre.  To view the basic landscape plan, please click on the image below.
