Welwyn Garden City pupils’ tree-mendous time
CORE blimey! Pupils at a WGC school have been having a tree-mendous time over recent weeks.
For children from Panshanger Primary School’s eco-council and gardening club have planted four apple trees in the grounds.
The project came about after four members of the council took part in a conference in Letchworth a couple of weeks prior, becoming climate ambassadors in the process.
The focus of the conference was Plant-for-the-Planet, an international organisation set up by a German boy named Felix Finkbeiner.
The aims of the organisation are to plant one million trees in every country of the world and, at the conference, the first three trees in England were planted.
