Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped plant over 25,000 trees to date. For every new home built, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of 15 trees in the local district. This year, the project will see over 8,500 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.
Ludek Valta from G. J. Gardner Homes Hobart is a generous supporters of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, Ludek has purchased 195 trees. Thirty were planted by the Lansdowne Crescent Primary School and 195 planted by the Okines Community Garden.
The 30 trees were planted on a freezing cold wintery morning by some members of my Prep class. They worked with one of the parent volunteers who works for our Kitchen Garden scheme (and general school grounds). The trees were planted on the bank in the Early Childhood Playground and also in one of the Gardens at the front of the school fronting onto Gourlay Street. We’ll try really hard to care for them and look after them because we want them to grow up to make our grounds looks more beautiful and provide places for birds, insects and small animals….
