Plant trees and the rains will come.

TREES PLANTED

G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped us plant well over 34,000 trees across Victoria and Tasmania. For every new home built, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of 15 trees in the local district. This year, the project will see over 8,500 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.

The partnership with Fifteen Trees allows GJG teams to go into the field for some team building activities as well as help support the local community through their corporate social responsibility policies.

GJGLogo_NO-TAG_WHITE_BG_lrg Danny Breen and Kris Gill from G. J. Gardner Homes Sunbury are generous supporters of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, the team purchased 195 trees for Jackson Creek, Gisborne.   tree planting    

The trees were finally put into the ground at four separate sites along Jacksons Creek, Gisborne. They are now being watered by those clouds in the sky (good timing). We planted in bare patches that have been cleared of blackberry and other weeds by the Friends of Jackson Creek group at previous working bees.  The plantings will hopefully reduce weed regrowth over time.

Thanks for the opportunity that allowed us to ‘keep the creek healthy’.

Thank you to the team from G. J. Gardner Homes Sunbury for the trees donated to the Friends of Jackson Creek. Six volunteers worked solidly for many hours to get the trees planted. Looks like it was great timing. Trees were planted and the rains came! Slàinte – Colleen
