Do you want a more inclusive, fairer, sustainable Australia? ChangeFest is a gathering of people intent on making change in their communities. It’s a dynamic opportunity to learn, plan, collaborate and progress you and your community’s agenda for change.

You are invited to join in a movement intent on changing the systems that hold disadvantage in place. Come to ChangeFest and add your voice, your ideas and learn from one another.

At the heart of this collaboration is a commitment to remind Governments that First Peoples, who have layered a culture-of-place in hundreds of communities over thousands of years and been confronted with different ways of doing by the recent creation of Australia as a nation, need to reimagine the relationship they have with the country’s oldest citizens.

 

This is the call to action from Pippa Bailey and the team from ChangeFest. Next year will see ChangeFest in the Northern Territory. Join up to their mailing list to ensure you receive all updates and event info.

 

 

 

To help reduce their carbon footprint, Fifteen Trees have planted 45 trees on the behalf of this amazing organisation. The trees were planted by Barbara James in Central Victoria. Barbara is part of the Campaspe Valley Landcare Group who are looking after numerous revegetation projects in this district.

 

45 trees and 1 dog

 

I received 45 tree seedlings from Campaspe Valley Landcare and planted them in two existing planting areas. These areas had been heavily depleted due to age, disease, weather, etc. The new seedlings consisted of E. viminalis, E. goniaocalyx and E. melliodora. Most went into a fenced plantation. They have been mixed with lower storey plants, such as silver banksias, melaleucas, acacias and tree violets. This area provides habitat for our visiting wildlife. It will shortly have nest boxes installed for tuans and birds, so I am hoping for vigorous growth!

Thank you to Pippa and ChangeFest for the opportunity to add these 45 trees to my property.

Big shout-out to Pippa for purchasing the trees as well as to Barbara who has found such a wonderful home for these trees. You can see how well protected these seedlings are with tree guards and a fenced off area. All the very best for ChangeFest 2020 in the NT.
