Moonambel Primary School, Victoria

TREES PLANTED

Cindy Veitch and her students from Moonambel have taken over the old oval at their school and are in the process of developing it into a native garden and reserve for wildlife. Their sustainability project will be a long term one and Fifteen Trees is delighted to be involved by supplying some of their first trees (60).

The trees.

From my understanding, the students dug 31 holes in preparation for tree planting and the next day one of the students (Joel) turned up with a back hoe and proceeded to dig holes for the remaining 29 trees!

The trees were planted with tree guards and a watering roster has been devised. Thank you to Cindy, what a fantastic legacy you and your students are providing for your school. Fifteen Trees would like to thank the following people for their contribution – Damien McClellan from EcoTreasures, a Sydney tour company that specializes in eco tours in NSW (10 trees), Christine Wright (30 trees), Federal Member for Ballarat Catherine King (15 trees) and Sabina Crawley who has bought 3 trees as a gift for her friend Joan Ashman. Fifteen Trees kicked in for the remaining 2 trees. Community groups are now planing their projects for 2014. If you have been thinking about supporting tree planting now is the time.

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.
