Bate’s Bush Swan Hill, Vic


Lake Boga and District Landcare Group are a fantastic team who are doing great things for their local environment. Recently they planted 50 trees at Bate’s Bush on the behalf of  Taverna Funerals. There was a massive amount of work to be done before the trees could be planted. They had to remove gorse and other nasty introduced species, set up a drip system and determine what species would be best planted. Tricia Pollard (secretary of the group) was delighted to have received the trees.

Lorraine Taverna wanted these trees planted on the behalf of the families who entrust their loved ones into her care. A family run company, Taverna Funerals has been in Swan Hill for many years (sometimes operating under different names). When I first approached Lorraine to see if she was willing to support her community through tree planting, she was very enthusiastic and is to be commended for her leadership and willingness to contribute. Thank you Lorraine and family. Slainte – Colleen      [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

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.
