Planting Trees During Reconciliation Week 2023

Trees play a crucial role in our environment, our cultures and in the fight against climate change. This past Reconciliation week, in support of reforestation efforts, in honour of Indigenous peoples and for the benefit of future generations, we proudly joined the Werribee community in planting trees.  

Reconciliation Week is a time to reflect on and celebrate the history, culture, and achievements of Australia's First Nations peoples. This is also a time to work towards reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, and to promote greater understanding and respect.

Planting trees is an important tradition in many Indigenous cultures and represents a connection to the land and a commitment to the future.  Trees are important in Indigenous Dreamtime stories and are seen as a symbol of life and growth in many cultures around the world.  Trees are also central in many Aboriginal artworks and serve as a way to preserve cultural heritage and history.  

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."  ― Nelson Henderson

More than ever we need to think seriously about reforestation. Planting trees is an essential and cost-effective way to address environmental concerns and ensure a sustainable future for all.  Planting trees is the most impactful, meaningful and inexpensive thing we can do now that will benefit the environment and all future earthlings.   

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.” – Australian Aboriginal saying
