The Grow 10 Trees project is aimed at one simple task: getting people to plan, water, and take care of a tree. They want people to literally grow 10 trees, and some people, like San Ġorġ Preca Middle School at Blata l-Bajda, have jumped on board.
But it’s not just them. Other people, like 22-year-old farmer Steve Zammit-Lupi, have also praised the initiative for helping beginners get into agriculture and spread the green gospel.
It’s even a pinned post in Is-Salott (RUBS).
In the video produced by Sprout Media, the students at San Ġorġ Preca Middle School got busy tilling the soiling and planting the trees with the help of some experts.
Students joined in on the watering as well, filling buckets to deliver to the newly planted trees. Students of all ages participated in the event, giving a useful and tangible lesson for the day.
The initiative has a wide range of backers, such as LEAF and Why Not?, and seems set to grow more and more with each tree planted. If you’ve never potted a plant, now might the perfect time.
