Pana’s Trees … as far as the eye can see.
The upshot was that during the winter and spring of 2014, the 10,000* trees were planted across 9 sites in the Flowerdale district.
Site 1: O’Grady Property at Strath Creek. This site had 2825 seedlings planted on it. Over the course of 3 days in late July, 1,975 seedlings were planted, including those trees planted by Pana and Fifteen Trees on National Tree Day.
Site 2: Three Sisters in Flowerdale. This site had 1,512 seedlings planted.
Site 3: Richardson Property in Flowerdale. This site had 2,777 seedlings planted.
Site 4: Baxter Property in Flowerdale.This site had 1,415 seedlings planted.
Site 5: King Property in Strath Creek. This site has had 300 seedlings added this season.
Site 6: Hubbard Paddock. Small site fenced off with 8 fabulous mature eucalyptus trees and 620 seedlings.
Site 7: Foster Property. A small strip of 40 trees we planted along an access road.
Site 8: O’Brien Property. 120 trees planted along a sunny bank at side access road.
Site 9: Granter Property at Strath Creek. At this site, 300 trees were planted on the hills.
I want to sincerely thank my Pozible supporters, together we raised $10,000 that went directly to support the buying of the trees from 2 small nurseries in the Flowerdale district. Thank you to those who bought trees for the campaign and to those who shared the link. I also want to thank those who came to the Pana’s De-gustion fundraising event. Over 120 people attended and together $6,000 was raised.
But mostly I want to thank Pana. His enthusiasm to plant 10,000 trees was infectious. He gathered people from all over, to share his vision, donate money and even getting some of them to come plant with us at Flowerdale on National Tree Day. The day was magical, the site was tucked between 2 valleys so we had beautiful warm sunshine to work in.
Pana, thank you for visiting my stall at the Melbourne Sustainable Living Festival and for taking a leadership role in climate action. Imagine if all companies had such vision and tenacity!
