Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped plant 34,000 trees across Victoria and Tasmania. For every new home built, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of 15 trees in the local district. This year, the project will see over 8,500 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.

Our tree planting day was a great success with us gaining a lot of positive feedback and interest in the community!  It was an enjoyable afternoon had by all and the numerous pairs of hands made quite light work of it all.   The Group has started to update and enhance the northern entry to Red Cliffs, both sides of Nardoo St.  This section of the road is called Jacaranda St and becomes the Calder Hwy as it leaves the township.

Thankfully the CFA are watering these plants for the community, which is fantastic.  Everyone really enjoyed this session and were grateful for the afternoon tea snacks provided by Brad and Di Stanbrook of G.J. Gardner Mildura.   Its lovely getting all walks of life and ages involved in this activity and we plan to continue this annually, if possible.

Many thanks
