November 2016, Autumn - UK Schools Tree Planting Action

The autumn tree planting continues with gusto....even though the temperatures have dipped our enthusiastic pupil, staff and sponsors keep planting. Last week we kept warm around a camp fire and enjoyed a few toasted marshmallows in between planting the trees. 

October Planting Begins!

This autumn we are planting in more than 80 locations, mostly schools. English Oak is top of the chart this time with Field Maple not far behind. Some interesting school locations are Portree Primary on the Isle of Skye and Greenmount Primary on the Isle of Wight. Some non-school locations include the Girl Guides camp at East Grinstead and Wythenshawe Fire Station. Locations range from Plymouth to Aberdeen and from Canterbury to Londonderry.

 

Planting has started this autumn with the first session held at the Royal Alexandra & Albert School in Redhill. Enthusiastic year 6 and year 8 pupils planted 280 native broad leaf trees in Gatton Park (where the school is located) that will support the wide range of biodiversity there.

May 2016 - Kenya Reforestation (Esconet)

Wa chiru's, a recently widowed mother of 2 daughters,  inspirational story

Esconet has been my source of livelihood for the last three years,  offering me permanent  employment unlike my previous situation where I did odd jobs and even fetched firewood in the forest for sale to earn my family food on the table. As my late husband suffered, I had a reliable source of money for his care, making me family bread-winner and provider.... I continue to be a member of my church and provider of my family, while also caring for my dairy cow which I will soon be milking. While previously i considered the forest only as my source of firewood, I now consider it as the provider for my family."
