40 Endemic Holm Oak saplings were donated to the Parks Department to be planted at Buskett. These saplings have grown from seeds collected by the Centre’s EkoSkola students from the Wardija region and were planted and taken care of by the Centre’s Gardening Unit and Forest Team (LEAF) with great care and attention. During summer parents also took part in fostering these young plants. The students continued to nurture them during this scholastic year. Eventually they will be able to enjoy them as fully grown trees at Buskett.
Pictures of this event were taken by James Cachia and Malik Hussein who are part of the Young Reporters for the Environment Team (YRE) and who’s aim is to report on the school’s environmental issues and activities.
