Sloothaak Property


Hello Colleen, I’ve attached some ‘photos of work in progress, a family effort’. JS”

Thanks must go to four of our Ballarat City Councillors who have carbon offset their cars with Fifteen trees. Through their support, 60 new native trees have been planted at the Sloothaak Property (west of Ballarat). Cr Samantha McIntosh, Cr Craig Fletcher, Cr Des Hudson and Cr Ben Taylor have all contributed privately to this project.

Their leadership is to be commended. Sixty trees (that otherwise would not have been planted) will provide native animals with habitat, prevent soil degradation  and over their lifetime will collectively absorb  up to 17000kg of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. To date, 60 cars have been carbon offset in 6 short months. We hope to have 100 cars offset by the end of the year … stay tuned –  Colleen.

At the heart of every nunnery is, of course, charity. We love our partnership with the Brigidine Sisters and are impressed with their passion to give. That’s a long history of giving from these remarkable women, and we are not only benefactors of this kindness, as their other philanthropy does ripple out to myriad of other organisations as well.

WPA acknowledges that when it comes to environmental initiatives, its people are its strength. It has recently partnered with us to plant 15 trees for each hard-working staff member identified as a Sustainability Warrior.
