Friends of Westgate Park.

TREES PLANTED

  “Friends of Westgate Park has successfully planted 450 trees  at Westgate Park( found right under the Bridge) using volunteers from The Green Jobs Corps. This group forms part of a Commonwealth Government initiative providing training and practical work for young people. The trees will be well maintained by the group (who has an excellent reputation). The re vegetation in Westgate Park is providing a green space close to the city of Melbourne. Friends of Westgate are really pleased to have a partnership with Fifteen Trees and their generous sponsor.

Keep up the good work – Tony Flude (Friends of Westgate Park)”   The generous sponsor of Westgate Park is  Peter King from Kings Cars Ballarat. The dealership has carbon offset 30 new cars (Citroens and Mitsubishi ASX ) with Fifteen Trees.  As a result, 450 native trees were planted at the reserve in North Melbourne. These trees (over their lifetime) will collect the carbon these 30 cars will emit over the next 12 months. Thank you Peter and the team at Kings Cars for your continued support of tree planting in Victoria. Cheers  – 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.
