MEN OF THE TREES
The founding members of Perth City Farm came from a background with Men of The Trees and were dedicated to improving environmental quality in Western Australia, encouraging youth involvement in environmental efforts, and promoting health and wellbeing through permaculture.
Men of the Trees in Western Australia is a not-for-profit, Incorporated Association, founded in 1979. Since that time it has planted more than 13 million seedlings to prevent the spread of deserts, erosion and salinity. Members, sponsors, donors, community and corporate volunteers have been part of making a difference in Western Australia. MOTT takes a leadership role by bringing people together from all walks of life, to grow trees and shrubs and to undertake revegetation activities with the community, partners and volunteers to improve the health, productivity and sustainability of degraded land.
In 2018 Men of The Trees changed their name to Trillion Trees in reference to their mission to plant one trillion trees on the earth! So far, they have planted more than 15 million native trees & understory species to improve biodiversity, combat salinity and soil erosion. Members, sponsors, donors, community and corporate volunteers have been part of this important work. In the same year, Perth City Farm split from Trillion Trees and became our own incorporation; yet we remain affiliated with their organisation as MOTT and it's dedicated leaders are the reason that PCF exists!
