Students from Lumen Christi Primary with their trees donated by Ballarat City.

Student from Lumen Christi were delighted to have 165 trees to plant, kindly donated by Justin Krousoratis from Ballart City (Peugeot and Honda). Along with these trees at the primary school, Justin also provided trees to local landowners such as the Tubb and Toose families at Napoleans (60 trees), the Briggs at Bald Hills (45 trees) and the Millar and Morell families at Elmore (again 60 trees each).

Land in dire need of some vegetation.

Gill also received 45 trees from Justin and she writes ‘Our trees were made all the more special because we were able to plant them on the property where we are building, so not only great for the environment, but the children will be able to see the growth and significance in planting the trees. Fifteen Trees is an amazing concept. As you can see from the photo (above) trees are desperately needed in this area’.

A couple of the 45 trees planted on the Briggs property at Bald Hills, Victoria.

Overall, Justin carbon offset another 33 cars with just on 500 trees being planted around the Ballarat and Elmore regions of Victoria.  An amazing effort and I thank him for his support over the past 2 years.

Cheers – Colleen
