“Friends of Westgate Park has successfully planted 450 trees  at Westgate Park( found right under the Bridge) using volunteers from The Green Jobs Corps. This group forms part of a Commonwealth Government initiative providing training and practical work for young people. The trees will be well maintained by the group (who has an excellent reputation). The re vegetation in Westgate Park is providing a green space close to the city of Melbourne. Friends of Westgate are really pleased to have a partnership with Fifteen Trees and their generous sponsor.

Part of the team of volunteers from the Green Jobs Corps.

Keep up the good work – Tony Flude (Friends of Westgate Park)”

 

The generous sponsor of Westgate Park is  Peter King from Kings Cars Ballarat. The dealership has carbon offset 30 new cars (Citroens and Mitsubishi ASX ) with Fifteen Trees.  As a result, 450 native trees were planted at the reserve in North Melbourne. These trees (over their lifetime) will collect the carbon these 30 cars will emit over the next 12 months.

Thank you Peter and the team at Kings Cars for your continued support of tree planting in Victoria.

Cheers  – Colleen
