Flowerdale … flowers again


This spring the wattles and eucalyptus trees will be flowering again thanks to the generous supporters of Fifteen Trees. This support has come from many quarters and individuals, so much so that over the year, Fifteen Trees has been able to offer Flowerdale Landcare 3,000 trees for their re-vegetation planting projects. As you can see in the photos below, these guys and their teams are having a huge impact on their local native environment.  
This is one of many plantings that have taken place at Flowerdale this year. This particular planting site was on a residential block in Flowerdale that was destroyed in the 2009 fire. Some of the trees/shrubs donated by Fifteen Trees supporters were used to in-fill around remnant trees. The seedlings planted on this site are all indigenous to the area.

Fifteen artists produced amazing works and so we decided here at Fifteen Trees we would plant 15 trees per artist (15 x 15 = 225). It was a roaring successful that accumulated in our Yoga Tree Pose on the last day which coincided with National Tree Day.   13924809_1256476941069111_5281104178359361562_n   At a Green Drinks fundraiser, Fifteen Trees donated 15 trees to the winner of the Trivia Night. Then we had a Facebook call out for photos of … ‘sky through trees‘. Twenty people took up the challenge and posted a photo. As a result, we have planted 20 trees on their behalf. All up …. 477 trees for Flowerdale. Slàinte – Colleen   13346531_1031667153587763_2151603427650971386_n 13435328_1041455459275599_4212149651847728832_n

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.
