Ever since Luminary began (1999), they have strived to use technology to make the world a better place. While people are at the heart of what they do, the planet is now also very much a part of the equation.

When Fifteen Trees got the opportunity to go tree planting on Herring Island, Melbourne, we knew that the team from Luminary would be first to put up their hands to come help out. And we weren’t wrong.

 

Luminary in action.

 

On Friday November 19th, a small team gathered from Luminary, ParksVIC, Friends of Herring Island and Fifteen Trees. Together, we planted a variety of native shrubs (Correa and Lamanda) and trees (Casuarina). All up 500 plants in the ground in less than 3 hours.

Herring Island became an island when a small peninsula in a bend of the Yarra River was cut off from the land in the 1930’s. It was pretty much left to its own devices (with the occasional visit from the Scouts) until 1992 when Friends of Herring Island was established.  Since then, this group (along with ParksVIC) have revegetated the island with species that are indigenous to the district. Friends of Herring Island meet up on the island on the first Sunday of the month. If you are interested in becoming a part of this group, rock up at the punt just down from Kanteen Cafe at 10.30am.

 

There are a range of things we can do as a society to reduce our carbon footprint. We believe that planting trees is the most effective way to have people experience a physical representation of their carbon footprint.
