Trees Are the Hope of Life – WMSCOG in Westmeadows Melbourne

14.08.2016, Westmeadows Melbourne.

There is a rising interest in promoting tree planting and caring for native trees and plants. The World Mission Society Church of God is actively carrying out worldwide Tree Planting Campaigns to support local biodiversity of urban areas. And the movement is being carried out with one mind under the goal to conserve beautiful nature.

On August 8, 2016, the members from the Church of God held a tree planting campaign in celebration of winning The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award. Trees are the hope of life and produce many benefits for mankind. Without trees we would not have oxygen to survive. The campaign was carried out in Westmeadows Melbourne and the 71 volunteers planted 340 trees, and removed 1500 tree guards from a earlier planting.

Great Work with Happy Smile

For three hours, the volunteers actively participated in the campaign starting at 1 pm, carrying and planting the seedlings, and also removing tree guards from trees planted two years ago. Finally, the volunteers worked in unity and achieved a great result.

A member named Cindy said, “I really enjoy these tree planting events! It makes me feel like I have done something good for the environment.”

A member named Hilda said “I was so shocked how quickly we completed the work today as a team. I’m so happy we were able to plant so many seedlings, I can’t wait to come back in the future to see how they are growing.”

What an Amazing Group!

Melissa Doherty from ‘Friends of Moonee Ponds Creek‘, Hume City Council said “This is the first time I have worked with the World Mission Society Church of God. Had I known that so many volunteers were going to come I would have prepared more seedlings. What an amazing group!”

Kelvin Thomson, president of ‘Friends of Moonee Ponds Creek’, expressed his gratitude remarking “The work that you are doing is just fantastic! I and the ‘Friends of Moonee Ponds Creek’ really appreciate it. Thanks for coming today and congratulations on your Award, well done!”
The Church of God in Melbourne plans to continually carry out tree planting activities every year with ‘Friends of Moonee Ponds Creek’. They aim to attract native birds to the local area by enhancing the natural vegetation.
