THE largest organic fruit salad, longest straw chain and most lemons cut in mid-air were among the quirkier records
set at Gladfield at the weekend - but the most important one was surely the most trees planted in an hour.

Thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors for participating in our planting day on the Weekend. It was a fantastic day!
About 90 people turned out to help us on the day which was fantastic. Ipswich Queens Park Scout Group and the team from Nissan Warwick were some of the participants on the day. The Largest Organic Fruit Salad weighed in at 21.49kg and Metro managed 45 litres of hand squeezed lemonade which was really tasty! Thanks to Mr Organic of Toowoomba the fruit salad was very popular and was beautiful.
The kids had a fantastic time and it was well worth it to see them having so much fun planting. It was hard going on the day and hot so the kids did a great job.
WILD World Records adjudicators Daniel and Annemarie Van Hees were very happy the records and are hoping to set some more at the next planting.
Jigsaw Event Planners who donated their time and theming were an absolute must on the day and it could not have been so smooth without them. Thanks to the team at Jigsaw....

We are only 3 days away from planting and it is panning out to be a fantastic day with people coming from as far as Melbourne to plant their dedicated trees. It is such a lovely idea for people to come and plant their own trees. So far there are 5 groups of people planting their dedicated trees on the day. Treehenge staff will be planting a memorial tree for Daniel Morcombe on the day. There have been a couple more sponsors jump on board as well. Entice Me Catering has donated bread for the day, Masterfoods is helping out with our saucing requirements, Woolworths have dontated a $50 voucher for drinks on the day. Its a wonderful feeling to see everyone getting behind us for this momentous occasion.
In other really exciting news we just had our first dedication in Victoria due to the hard work of our Representative in the Melbourne office Hugh Bathurst. Congratulations Hugh!! A sign of more good things to come we are sure.
