The Stawell Urban Landcare Group were very grateful to receive a generous donation of 70 native trees from Geoff Sanderson of Fred Couch and Son Funerals.

The trees were used as part of the beautification and maintenance program developed by the Landcare group to provide recreation resources to the community of Stawell.

Catherine McDermott, Administration Office from Project Platypus writes ..

Stawell Urban members, Angela Baker, Cathy McDermott, Ian Nicholson and Liz Jackson together with volunteers Nathan Baker and William McDermott (8 yo) spent a stunning Saturday morning planting 35 trees at the Moonlight Sands Parkland, an urban area that has been transformed from a wasteland to a park. The other 35 trees were planted at the Pleasant Creek Walking Track.   

Thank you to Geoff Sanderson from Fred Crouch and Son and thank you to Fifteen Trees for networking with other organisations in raising awareness of natural resource issues and helping to reduce our carbon footprint.

Indeed, thank you Geoff for your support of both the local community and the local environment at Stawell. Landcare groups are a great resource and your kind donation has enabled them to continue their work.

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.
