TRILLION TREES NEWS

SEPTEMBER 2019

A NEW CYCLE BEGINS

At Trillion Trees, the end of September marks the end of our financial year because we have set this according to the growing and planting cycle. At this time of year our Nursery is empty because close to two hundred thousand plants, grown and cared for by community volunteers, have been collected from the Nursery and planted out there somewhere in greater Perth and in country areas. Our Revegetation team, with the help of a huge number of community members, will have planted 147,000 trees by the end of September over more than 20 planting events.

Well done to everyone who has been involved and thank you.

And it is all about to happen again.

Keep an eye on this space in the coming months because the Trillion Trees Challenge is going to step up a notch.
Trillion Trees now has a free library, thanks to a donation of books by Rob Vaisey! Located in the kitchen area, it works on the principle that you can take a book to read and keep, and/or donate a book for others to read. For the time being, it is in a plastic box but if someone would like to help us make a 'little library' stand for the books, that can be placed outdoors, we'd love to hear from you!"

UPCOMING PLANTING EVENTS

Join us to plant trees to help restore river health.

We’ve been planting sections of the Helena River in Woodbridge. These plantings will help improve water quality and provide habitat for wetland fauna.

The last planting for this section is on Saturday 21 September with morning and all-day planting sessions available. Mike and Mandy Bamford will present an insect hotel building workshop at lunchtime.  To register CLICK HERE

The ‘Helena Valley Riparian Restoration and Education Program is funded by the Australian Government through the National Landcare Program – Environment Small Grants.

We won’t stop planting if it rains. Rain is good for the seedlings, but we will cancel a planting if there is an anticipated thunderstorm or if there are weather warnings or other risky situations that will affect us.

How does a member of the Fyfe family celebrate their birthday? Planting trees with Trillion Trees. What else? Happy Birthday Rob Fyfe and thank you for all your support and help this year.

UPCOMING SPRING WORKSHOPS

How connected are you to nature?
Where do you find wonderment?
What do these things have to do with work and life?
 
Dr Sandra Krempl is a community engagement facilitator and a strategic planner. She has worked across Australia and overseas. Through the stories Sandra has gathered about how people experience nature, creativity and wonderment, she helps us unlock the ‘secrets’ of what makes places and communities special.

This workshop is suitable for individuals and those involved in community, business and government. It is a workshop that articulates the many tangible and intangible layers required in the pursuit of sustainability. For more information contact sandra@trilliontrees.org.au

It is with a deep sense of sadness and loss that we vale our good friend and long time Trillion Trees volunteer Susan Turner, known to most as Sue. Sue began her journey with the (then called) Men of the Trees in the early 90’s, working in the nursery attending many tree plantings and seed collecting trips out in the Wheatbelt. Her quiet efficiency did not go unnoticed and she was offered the position of Nursery Assistant with whom she job-shared with Kerryjoy Chorizema. Together they worked seamlessly in their roles and tirelessly kept jobs up to volunteers, maintaining the good order of the running of the Nursery. Her gentleness and cheerful friendly ways earned her the respect of all who worked with her and it was another sad day when in 2012, Sue retired due to progressively failing health. Sue had a very interesting life, filled with travel in her younger days, and doing some long bicycle rides around Australia. She worked as a librarian and also volunteered in the Book Sales for Save the Children. She passed in July and will be missed by all of us who knew and lovedher. Rest in peace Sue.   Ross Burnett

A world audit of trees in 2015 shows there are just 3 trillion trees left in the world - that's half what there used to be.

We, as a global community, need a new tree planting target - to plant 1 trillion trees!

If each person in the world plants 140 trees, we will achieve this!
