We are delighted to announce that Canopy Fitouts recently purchased 500 trees for one of our favourite Melbourne sites – Westgate Park, Port Melbourne. And as an added bonus, on Friday June 25th, the team joined us and Friends of Westgate Park, on site, to plant the trees.
Westgate Park is a ‘work in process’ with the volunteers working to transform the park into a natural bushland for all of Melbourne to enjoy. The addition of 500 native plants will certainly help with this transformation.
Canopy Fitouts’ name was inspired by the way the forest canopy shelters and protects the rest of the forest so it can thrive, it stays close to our vision to create inspiring workplaces that encourage and enrichen the lives of workplace inhabitants to build and grow successful organisations. We take the challenge and uncertainty to help guide our clients into making decisions that allow them to build successful organisations and we take the stress out of the process so they can get on and do what they do best much like how the canopy helps protect the forest.
Man-made canopies serve the same purpose, they provide protection and give space and boundaries. At Canopy Fitouts they value beautiful work spaces, and now they are working towards a beautiful space for the people of Melbourne.
We are really excited to help give back to the environment so we would love you to help donate or pick up a shovel and help Canopy build a Canopy!

On the rain drenched day, Canopy planted over 700 native plants (ranging from small trees to shrubs to ground covers) with Nic from Friends of Westgate Park and a couple of us from Fifteen Trees. As promised, Director Karl followed through on his pledge to wear a suit if we received a donation over $1,000. And we did thanks to the generosity of Plan System. In fact, thanks to Canopy’s Go Fund Me campaign, another $4,201,00 was raised. This money is going towards another 670 trees, all earmarked for the Northern Grampians District of Western Victoria. Once those trees have been planted, this blogpost will be updated. Stay tuned.
