Daylesford Dharma School.


Hi Colleen, Thank you so much for the trees. We planted them all on public land on the perimeter of an open playing field. A space that is shared by the Daylesford Dharma School and the Daylesford Tennis Club. We are changing the embankment from a lawn area (that has been chemically sprayed in the past) to a native habitat with mixed plantings that includes native grasses, shrubs and trees’. Cheers –  Andrea Furness.

Community project with all ‘hands on deck’.

 With the Daylesford community behind her,  Andrea has coordinated the planting of 210 native trees on public land in the central spa region of Victoria. Many generous contributors have enabled this to occur. They include – Nabben who has carbon offset a flight and Thurgood who asked me to plant one tree on his behalf. Sr Margaret from the Brigidine Community in Cobram, Pip from Partycles (party supplies) and Siobhan from B’itch Body Oils (gorgeous body oils and washes) have all carbon offset their cars for 2012. Claire Coulson has bought 15 trees as gifts (Coulson and Cross) as has The Herd, who bought 15 trees for a valued member.  Asha from Angus & Celeste has donated $1.00 for every on-line purchase from their beautiful website and this quarter (Oct, Nov & Dec) has helped plant another 75 trees.

All up 203 trees! As Andrea planted 210 – I kicked in for the last 7.

Lots of activity, lots of generous support and lots of thanks to you all.

Cheers – Colleen

At the heart of every nunnery is, of course, charity. We love our partnership with the Brigidine Sisters and are impressed with their passion to give. That’s a long history of giving from these remarkable women, and we are not only benefactors of this kindness, as their other philanthropy does ripple out to myriad of other organisations as well.

WPA acknowledges that when it comes to environmental initiatives, its people are its strength. It has recently partnered with us to plant 15 trees for each hard-working staff member identified as a Sustainability Warrior.
