Trees of Instagram.

Earlier this year we ran a campaign on Instagram asking people to tag us in their favourite tree photos. We called it ‘Trees of Where I Am’. We wanted to know about the beloved trees. The trees that brighten a daily walk, that shelter the grandchildren, that survive against all odds, that give the horizon its distinctive shape. We promised to plant one tree for every post we were tagged [...]

Sponsoring trees in remote locations means taking a broad view of environmental stewardship. It means recognising that everything is connected. Munash Organics understands this connectivity and is intent on improving our soils on a micro level, project by project, site by site. But it also appreciates that its business activities aren’t without impact. And as a result, Munash has partnered up with Fifteen Trees to help reduce the carbon footprint of [...]

An Earthy Cheers!

Wine, as any aficionado will tell you, is a holistic experience – you taste, smell, swirl, describe, hunt for metaphors, tell other people about it, look for the quirkiest or most picturesque cellar door, then go liking to find out how the wine was made and by whom. Wine is ultimately about connection. To the story in the bottle, to the land from which it came. Gundog Estate is a [...]

Frolicking Gently on the Earth.

Ballarat Frolic Festival is Ballarat’s very own LGBTQ+ arts and culture festival. It’s hard to understate the importance of local festivals to LGBTQ+ communities. Everyone deserves to feel safe and valued in the streets of their hometown, but in traditionally conservative regional areas acceptance of difference can be slow. Frolic provides a safe space to celebrate the rich creative talents of Ballarat’s queer community.     Last year (2109) was [...]

Who doesn’t love electricity. I mean, you might not think about it much, but imagine your daily life without it…pretty bleak, right? We’re also very keen on electricians, because they tame and train the electricity, and we especially love electricians with an environmental conscience. Like Luke and Nick from Effective Electrical. Luke, Nick, and their team of professionals will do most electrical work, including installing solar panel systems. Home solar [...]
