Planting trees for Yogaville.

TREES PLANTED

Each asana (yoga posture) has a beautiful shape,

grace and elegance that bestows power

and makes the practitioner as strong as a diamond

and at the same time as soft as a flower’ – BKS Iyengar

yogavillelotuslogocrop Bronwyn Rust, owner and founder of Yogaville contacted Fifteen Trees looking for a way to reduce the carbon footprint of her yoga studio in Preston, Vic. Bronwyn wanted 15 trees planted for every year the studio had been up and running and another 15 for her car. Ninety trees all up! Bronwyn’s trees went out to Flowerdale up in the Murrindindi Shire of central Victoria. This district was ravaged by the Black Saturday fires 6 years ago. The landcare groups are still working hard to re-vegetate and restore. Bronwyn’s 90 trees were very much appreciated and were part of a larger planting of 500 trees at the Wheeler property.

Steve Joplin, President of Flowerdale Landcare wrote … ‘Brave souls from the Flowerdale Landcare Group, took to the banks of the beautiful King Parrot Creek, a gem of a waterway at the south western end of the Shire, on National Tree Day. The objective was to plant 500 trees on the property of Gary and Jill Wheeler, home of R.A.W. Plants, one of two indigenous plant nurseries in Flowerdale. Twenty one well rugged people took to the task in the 11 degree warmth and within an hour could say ‘job done’. Thank you Yogaville for your most generous contribution.” Talking about trees and yoga, on National Tree Day we celebrated at Fifteen Trees by going out to a park to stand quietly in Tree Pose (Vriksasana).

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.

The Institute of Public Accounts has supported one of our revegetation projects by purchasing a tree for every attendee at their recent Victorian Conference held in Ballarat, VIC. The trees (70) were planted in the district, in the weeks following the conference.
