Trees as a kickstarter!

TREES PLANTED

Hindmarsh Plumbing Services has been in operation since 1973 and provide employment to over 200 South Australians. They are big players in giving back to their community and they currently support groups such as Cara Respite, Puddle Jumpers and Arthritis SA. Now they have joined Fifteen Trees and are supporting local community landcare projects in SA. Purchasing 300 trees for Karen Bishop and the Riverland West Landcare group, these trees will reduce the carbon footprint of 20 vehicles in their fleet.     Image result for hindmarsh logo    
Riverland West Landcare in conjunction with the Australian Vintage Vineyard in Waikerie (SA) recently planted 300 native trees thanks to the generous people from Hindmarsh Plumbing Services. Employees of Australian Vintage helped lay irrigation pipes to ensure the trees recieve water over the coming summer months. Thank you to Hindmarsh for your support of this Landcare project in Waikerie. A total of 5 hectares of revegetation is being undertaken by the winery and these trees are a wonderful kick starter! We look forward to seeing the trees progress when we go back next year to do more plantings. Karen Bishop | Project Officer | Riverland West Landcare

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.
