Ross Creek Primary School (Vic)

TREES PLANTED

Hi Colleen, We had a great day at Ross Creek on Friday. There were about 60 children involved during the day and we planted out 200 trees. It was pleasant weather and we want to thank Simon Mulqueen for the lovely plants. The reserve is looking really good with the last couple of years of extra plantings. Cheers Rosemary (Ross Creek Landcare President). IMG_2634 Simon Mulqueen from F.W Barnes & Sons Funerals have been supporting our local environment in both Ballarat and Bendigo by providing trees. Simon plants one tree for every funeral service. There is no charge to the families, he does this as a community kindness. Over the years, Simon has provided over 800 trees (and tree guards) to community groups such as Learmonth Community Gardens, Ross Creek Landcare, Ballarat Environmental Network (BEN) and Huntly Pound Landcare Group. Huge thank you Simon for your contribution. Slainte – Colleen

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.
