The Roots and Shoots Program sponsored by the Jane Goodall Foundation runs a workshop for students which looks at the school landscape, the local animals, trees and shrubs needed for a healthy and sustainable environment. Class 6-7 were part of the country-wide initiative. Recently we had delivered the final element of the workshop – the plants! $400 worth of local native flora!!!. Over the last few days we have been gently putting them into earth so that they can flourish over the summer break.
Thanks you Jane Goodall Foundation.
