Community spirit at G.J. Gardner East Gippsland.


Ross Morley, Managing Director of G.J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has now helped plant over 44,000 trees across Victoria and Tasmania. For every new home built, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of 15 trees in the local district.

This year alone the project will see over 11, 310 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.

Team building brings people together by encouraging teamwork. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in different settings. One of the best reasons for team building is that the activities actually work to accomplish improved communication. A successful team building activity, will surely mean a more comfortable, successful workplace environment for any company. And when you combine team building and volunteer work (such as tree planting) – well you are ticking all boxes!!

Working hard planting trees at Tambo Bluff.
  Michael and Helen Ellett from G.J. Gardner East Gippsland understands the importance of team building activities. Last month, Helen headed out with their team to distribute and plant 435 trees with Tambo Bluff Landcare Coastcare and the wider Tambo Bluff Community.
The G.J. Gardner Homes local franchise principals Michael and Helen Ellett and staff commit to planting 15 trees for every home they build (through the agency of Fifteen Trees). Not only have they once again provided the funds to us for plants, they have taken time off from their work to come out and put in some hard slog helping us get those plants in the ground. Very much appreciated. Thank you Michael and Helen.  Maurice Burns | Secretary | Tambo Bluff Landcare Coastcare

Beautiful site at Tambo Bluff, Gippsland, Vic.
  Indeed, many thanks to Michael and Helen for your continued support of our native environment. Another 435 trees have been planted in this beautiful part of Victoria thanks to your generosity. If you too are interested in community team building activities that also have a positive effect on the earth,  please contact us. Sláinte – 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.
