Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013. By the end of this year, Ross and the team at GJG will have helped plant over 56,000 trees across Victoria and Tasmania. For every new home built, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of 15 trees in the local district. This year alone, the relationship between G.J. Gardner Homes and Fifteen Trees, will see over 11,000 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.
The partnership with Fifteen Trees, allows G.J. Gardner teams to go into the field for some team building activities as well as giving some support to the local community.
Michael Ellett from G. J. Gardner Homes East Gippsland is a generous supporter of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, Michael purchased 435 trees for the Tambo Bluff Landcare Coastcare group. The trees were planted on National Tree Day. The team from GJG joined in with Landcare volunteers and as a result all trees were planted on the day! Great effort.
Tambo Bluff Landcare Coastcare were lucky enough to receive planting assistance in the form of funding and on-ground labour to help plant over 400 plants on National Tree Day Friday 26 July 2019. Each year the local franchise of G.J. Gardner Homes, owned and operated by the Ellett family, commit to plant 15 trees for every home they build. Tambo Bluff Landcare Coastcare have been the local recipients of these plants. And for this we are truly grateful.
We had a really good day. Good company, refreshing morning tea and lots of planting. Nothing better!
Maurice Burns | Secretary | Tambo Bluff Landcare Coastcare
Thank you to Michael, not only for providing trees to Maurice and his team but for also taking some time out of the office to help plant. Thank you also to Maurice for finding such a great site for these trees and coordinating the tree planting day.
