Angus & Celeste love us best!

Angus & Celeste have been with us for some time. Their appreciation of the Australian landscape isn’t just evident in their designs – it’s woven right into the fabric of their business practices.

TREES PLANTED

300

Angus and Celeste are long time supporters of our tree planting projects. Since 2012, they have been helping us plant trees. And to date, their tree tally stands at over 3,000 trees across Australia.

This month, we planted another 300 trees on their behalf. This brand is adorable! It consists of handmade ceramics with strong themes connected to nature. Located in the hills of Victoria, Angus and Celeste purchase 100 trees every quarter for our community tree planting projects. If you would like to learn more about Asha and Keir, the couple behind the brand, we recently interviewed them and wrote up this article.

The planting site for these particular native trees (shrubs, flowers and grasses) was on Dja Dja Wurrung land at Blampied, VIC. Mara from Village Dreaming is the landholder. Mara cares deeply for country and has spent many days working to restore her little piece of land back to the time before the European settlers.

 

I live on the land of the Dja DjaWurrung people, who nurtured and cared for country for 65,000 years and who continue to do so. Through the use of fire and dreamtime rituals, they shaped country and created one of the most beautiful continents on earth.

Thank you to Angus and Celeste for helping me look after this land.

Cait has ensured all plants were well protected.

 

Shoutout to Asha, Keir and Mara, who together are helping to restore a small part of this country back to a time when native plants and wildlife flourished.
