Gleeson College, Golden Grove, recognises the ever-increasing importance of improving its ecological footprint. As a community, in conjunction with local businesses, an Urban Forest Development was implemented in 2008. Students have since planted over 500 trees, which will offset the College’s carbon dioxide emissions, recover landscape and nurture biodiversity.
Around Gleeson College we have also had over 800 native plants planted by State Flora. We have also adopted various other water and electricity initiatives, including recycling boxes in classrooms and the option of electronic issues of the College newsletter, as the school works toward being carbon neutral.
