Last week, volunteers from Grace participated in a tree planting event hosted by Greenfleet at Bonna Point in Kurnell, New South Wales. The site is located on the lands of the Dharawal people, and the event aimed to contribute to environmental conservation efforts.
The day started with a morning tea, setting the tone for the rest of the event. Members from Greenfleet and Sutherland Shire Council took the stage, sharing valuable insights and updates on their joint conservation efforts. Volunteers from Grace including Derryk Guyer, Regional General Manager, Richard Socratous, Business Manager of Grace Fine Art, James Knipler, Eastern General Manager, and Marketing Coordinator Lylah Livingston rolled up their sleeves and devoted their time to planting various native species, including eucalyptus, lemongrass, lilly pilly, and kangaroo grass, near the waters of the Bonna Point Reserve.
Jacqueline Mier, Senior Partnerships Manager of Greenfleet said a total of 1,500 plants were successfully planted on this particular day. It is worth noting that Greenfleet has accomplished the remarkable feat of planting over 10.3 million trees throughout its 25 years of operation. For the past three years, Greenfleet has been an invaluable partner in Grace’s ongoing commitment to counterbalance its carbon emissions by planting trees. Grace takes great pride in being a part of this wonderful endeavor, making a valuable contribution towards this impressive and ongoing growth target.
