A team of 11 ANZ volunteers from the Docklands Human Resources department braved gale-force winds and temperatures below 5 degrees to plant 300 trees in Kinglake on Tuesday 29th July .
I think we did see the occasional snow flake fall around lunch time. Our fingers froze and our faces went numb . Everyone was extremely hungry as we huddled in Gloria and Phillip Wood’s rickety old shed for a warming BBQ lunch then turned the BBQ on full to thaw our fingers.
A quick half hour of planting after lunch and then the crew headed off the ridge top with car heaters on full. Thanks girls and guy; also thanks to Gloria and Phillip for their hospitality and to Andrew from Treeproject for his efforts at the end of the day.
