Winter planting

TREES PLANTED

Hello Planters, With the cold, wet weather of winter now here, it is the ideal time to be planting trees. Pop on a beanie, some gumboots and with a rosy face tackle that bare patch on your property. At present, we have two  local nurseries on board with ‘fifteen trees’  – Avalong Nursery (at Haddon) and Seeding Victoria (at Creswick/only open on the weekends). Both nurseries have loads of stock and are a great source of information on how to keep your new trees healthy and growing strongly. They also have a special price for the tree guards and stakes that you will need to ensure a good strike rate. For those who have picked up and planted their trees, don’t forget to email me a photo (if possible with people in the shot – helps make it more personal) and a comment so that those who have paid for your trees can have some feedback about where their money has gone. A list of businesses who support this project are listed on the ‘supporters’ page of the website. Keep warm – 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.
