Crewick North Primary School.

TREES PLANTED

Towards the end of last year the little primary school at Creswick North were the happy recipients of 10 mature trees donated by Maree and Brian Harrison of  Harrison Funerals Ballarat. The trees were planted by the students themselves but under the supervision of their teachers   Local families volunteered to water and maintain the trees over the long summer holidays. Principal Darren Mooney, was delighted to be able to improve the biodiversity of his school grounds as well as provide shade for his students in years to come.

Since September 2010, Maree and Brian Harrison have supported local community groups by supplying trees. Through their generosity over 60 trees have been planted at places such as Ballarat Art Studio, Garibaldi Community Hall, Durham Lead and EarthEd in Mt Clear.

We are gearing up for a busy autumn with lots of groups out there planting.

How many students to dig a hole? Apparently – four!

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.
