What Phoebe loves about the forest…

Phoebe, Year 7
St Martins Lutheran College

There are so many things to love about local forests.

One of the things I love most is the sense of peace and tranquility that comes from being surrounded by nature.

The forest is a place where I can escape from the noise and chaos of the city and take a moment to breathe and appreciate the world around me.

I also appreciate the way that local forests can help to mitigate the effects of climate change.

It’s inspiring to think that something as simple as a tree can have such a positive impact on the environment.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
