Malta participated with a major tree planting event on Arbor Day on Wednesday 15th January 2014. LEAF Malta in joint collaboration with 34U organised a local tree planting event to symbolize commitment in issues which affect us as global world citizens. The Wardija Resource Centre, which is a LEAF school participated with great enthusiasm and joined other schools in this noble cause. Only indigenous tree species were to be planted and the Wardija Resource Centre’s EkoSkola Committee students and staff all took part and during the event also participated in workshops about trees, insects and local traditions.
