“Colleen, here is the photo of the 60 donated trees that were planted this year. Thank you for your efforts and your marvelous program to help green our area”. Joanne Sloothaak
Out on the western planes of Ballarat, 60 trees where planted by Joanne and her family, made possible by the supporters of Fifteen Trees. These trees would not have been planted without the generous donations of individuals such as Emmaline Southwell (as a gift for Patricia McGarrity) and the 12 woman who bought one tree each during the ‘Honouring Women In Moreland’ Awards Night.
A few of the woman at the Moreland event, also bought one of my tree necklaces (from Run Around the Garden) which also entitled them to one tree planted on their behalf.
Some of Joanne’s trees (30) where also supplied by Richard Hayden from Hayden’s Real Estate (Ballarat) who has once again supported Fifteen Trees. This is Richard’s second year with Fifteen Trees and has now help to plant 60 trees.
Thank you to all involved, and a particular hello to the women I met at the Moreland evening.
Slainte – Colleen
