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.



Luke O’Connor and Andrew Timms from G. J. Gardner Homes Melbourne SE are generous supporter of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, Luke and Andrew purchased 270 trees for the Platypus Festival at Southern Dandenong.

The 2017 Platypus Festival was a terrific success. Entertainment, environmental education, recycled art, learning about our local waterways and the amazing creature that resides there, our beloved Platypus. It was also a terrific opportunity for planting indigenous plants alongside the creek. Hundreds of trees were planted on the day including 270 that were kindly donated by G.J. Gardner Homes. Those out planting included our fabulous community, the Platypus ambassador group & local scouts who were earning their environmental badge.

Thank you to G. J. Gardner Homes and Fifteen Trees for your amazing contribution toward our Platypus Festival.
