Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped plant 34,000 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. This is corporate social responsibility at its best!

Once again we had a fantastic day at the annual Bellarine Rail Trail Planting day. The 7th annual Bellarine Rail Trail revegetation day was another great success.  Sunny skies and good soil moisture saw all plants go in with complimentary weeding and mulching.  This provides connected wildlife corridors and habitat for local fauna species.  We had approx. 25 attendees which included representatives from the Queenscliffe Community Indigenous Nursery, Swan Bay Environment Association, and Green Army Program.

After a full day of planting, mulching and weeding we finished off with a BBQ the the Queencliffe Community Indigenous Nursery. Kindly all paid for by G.J. Gardner Geelong.
