Taggerty River, Dereel and Scotsburn (Vic).

TREES PLANTED

The Saint Brigidine Sisters are a small and diverse group of women inspired by St Brigid of Kildare. To quote from their website they ‘engage with the issues of our time’. Climate Change is certainly one of those issues and through Sr Anne and her colleagues, they have come together to take direct action. Twenty Sisters have individually contacted Fifteen Trees to have 15 trees planted on their behalf. All up  – 300 trees. I had 195 trees planted at Marysville, along the Taggerty River … [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]

Thank you Anne and all the St Brigidine Sisters from across the state. I hope to see you again at the upcoming Sustainable Living Festival early next year.  We can sit and have a tea by the Yarra River. Slainte – Colleen[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
