As you may be aware, here at eTool we are passionate about reducing Greenhouse gas pollution, and it’s not just when we are in the office but also in our spare time. Following on from last year’s successful weekend at Co-Founder Alex Bruce’s family farm, the eTool team set off for round two of tree planting.
Fei, Rich and Al from eTool as well as family, friends and academics from CUSP were prepared and excited for a full day of tree planting. This year Marri and Eucalyptus Grandis seeds were planted, that will grow into big beautiful trees that will help suck CO2 out of the atmosphere, reduce salinity and erosion while increase local biodiversity. Some of these trees will be utilised later in life for bio energy and potentially building products.
It was great to see the next generation (Rich’s kids) planting trees and getting their hands dirty.
We couldn’t have picked a better weekend if we tried as we were delivered with absolutely perfect weather. It started off as a beautiful sunny day and once all the trees were planted it started to rain, ideal to help water them in. Everyone was then delighted when the most amazing rainbow appeared.
To finish off a successful day the adults rewarded themselves with a glass of red by the bonfire to solve the problems of the world.
A great weekend spent, watching friends relax and chat while planting trees. We are all looking forward to next year already.
