As I walk among the trees, on this       
White Box  rise, I realise, that with all the
days I have lived in my life, these trees have spent
the same amount of days, passing time 

~ Solli Raphael from 'White Box Rise'

The POEM FOREST Prize creates positive climate action by inviting students and teachers to write and publish poems inspired by nature. Every poem received will become a tree planted on the traditional land of the Dharawal people, on Mount Annan at the heart of the Australian Botanic Garden, where remnants of critically endangered woodland and rainforest can be found.

Our curriculum-linked POEM FOREST Learning Resource is designed to support students and teachers to find inspiration before composing their nature poems as well as being packed with creative activities, sustainability tips, science stories and First Nations cultures and histories.
