Show Notes

Established in 2009, 15 trees operates a small team of 6 along with a host of native nurseries and community groups across Australia. They have facilitated the planting of over 250,000 trees in all states of Australia and New Zealand.

After attending the Franklin River protests in Tasmania with her husband Albert, an environmental science degree and years as a science teacher. She then left a life of education to create the social enterprise, 15 trees, planting trees for individuals, groups and corporates, adding to biodiversity, habitat and valuable fresh air producing forests.

In this episode we talk of the simplicity of creating a social enterprise that is utilising the skills of many individuals, allowing the giver to see their money well spent for the planet. And a hope that this story will inspire others to do what they love while giving back to people and planet.
