Tree Planting at Brigid’s Paddock.

TREES PLANTED

Sr Anne from the St Brigidine Order has taken me a little under her wing and has galvanised many of the Sisters around Australia to carbon offset their vehicles with Fifteen Trees. As a result, this year I have planted 300 trees on their behalf and the lovely thing is … the trees have all been planted on land donated to the Order.

Down at Shoreham at Brigid’s Paddock, 300 trees were planted earlier this year by a host of nuns and volunteers.

A well earned cuppa.
Last year, the Sisters planted out 200 trees and as you can see (below) they are coming along beautifully.
