Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped plant 1000’s of trees across Victoria and Tasmania. 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.
Chris and Tanya Dell from G. J. Gardner Homes Launceston are generous supporters of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, Chris and Tanya have purchased 315 trees for the Windsor Park Precinct Community Project and the Riverside Olympic Soccer Club, with coordination from the Allison Hugo at NRM North. At the soccer club teams planted around the recreational field where they train.
Thanks so much for creating this opportunity. We had 2 very successful planting sessions.
First on Sunday 31st July at the Windsor Precinct with the Youth Coalition Climate Coalition and the Body Shop staff (12 community members). Second on Thursday 10 August and Tuesday 17 August at the Riverside Olympic Soccer Grounds with the Riverside Olympic Junior Soccer Club. We had approximately 30 plus teams and 60 plus planters.
Rod from GJ Gardner Homes attended yesterday afternoon’s planting. Thanks again for your support and this wonderful community based opportunity.
