  “Dearest Filippa,  Thank you so much for the opportunity to receive two trees via your generous project.  The trees are to be the very first plants that will establish a new garden surrounding an old church in Ballarat. The small church grounds have been neglected for many years, and so these trees are particularly valued. All my own resources are being channelled into renovating the interior of the church and setting up the new Art Therapy business, so I would not have normally have indulged in buying trees at this stage.  These  trees will be celebrated in our weekly meditation group this week”.  L.F Once again thank you to Brian and Maree Harrison from Harrison Funerals who have kindly paid for these mature trees to be planted on the grounds at the old church in South St, Ballarat. Their concept of carbon offsetting cremations is a fabulous one. Green burials and funerals are at present a new concept but one in which will become more popular as people become more aware of our impact on the world and begin to take action – from cradle to grave. Through the support of Harrison Funerals, ‘Fifteen Trees’ can now offer mature trees to land-care groups, community groups and individuals who want to simply plant trees – and we all know we need to plant trees, lots of trees. Cheers – Colleen

Individual actions really do matter! Individually we can really only make small differences to the world around us, but collectively our numbers add up. And if enough individuals are involved then forests can be grown!

We have a handful of organisations who purchase trees when they can. These organisations are masters of ingenuity when it comes to incorporating tree planting into their business practices.

The Institute of Public Accounts has supported one of our revegetation projects by purchasing a tree for every attendee at their recent Victorian Conference held in Ballarat, VIC. The trees (70) were planted in the district, in the weeks following the conference.
