I was fortunate to be able to join Greenpop on one of their planting days – it’s always during the week but they managed to arrange a saturday plant day. We went to Blossom Street Primary School in Silvertown Athlone and planted 40 trees. Here is the day in pictures – which included collecting mulch (horse poo and straw), digging holes, making sure roots of the plant are not too deep or too shallow, ensuring that leaves are facing the sun – who knew planting trees was such an involved process. I learnt alot, had loads of fun and got to meer some cool people.
Greenpop has a new project Trees for Zambia – be sure to check out their website.
