Evoke. A sustainable building group.

TREES PLANTED

The Evoke Building Group don’t just build houses. Their dream is to build people a home. A home that is highly energy efficient and low maintenance with a focus on environmentally friendly building solutions. As they state on their website We only get one planet people! We don’t want our kids picking up the bill!     We were delighted when Evoke contacted us asking if we could plant 105 trees on their behalf (15 trees for every vehicle in the fleet). Of course we could … and did! The trees were planted at a favourite location of ours – Westgate Park. This is the park you see when you drive over the Westgate Bridge into and out of Melbourne. It is a 40 hectare reserve that is slowly but surely being brought back to what it once was; a thriving river ecosystem with masses of native wildlife, and in particular birdlife.

  Volunteers of Westgate Biodiversity planted out the trees. This amazing group meet up regularly, to not only plant, but to remove the introduced weeds, mulch and water the new trees (shrubs and grasses) and general maintenance work. As you can imagine, this maintenance can be massive over the 40 hectare park. Thank you to Tony Flude and his team for their tieless work. And thank you Evoke for your contribution. We don’t have to be perfect as we move towards living more sustainably, we just have to move in the right direction. Sláinte – Colleen   Colleen Filippa is the Founder and Director of Fifteen Trees.
