Sharing tree-planting with other schools

Working together to plant trees
Working together to plant trees

In normal years, a local State Junior High school visits Leuser Nature School. In 2020 and 2021, the COVID pandemic prevented this, but the visit was finally able to happen again this year, in late February 2022. The purpose of the visit is to enable the students to get to know each other and to share with each other the different experiences they have of studying at their respective schools. At the end of this year's visit, the Leuser Nature School children showed their visitors how to plant trees in the Bukit Mas Permaculture Centre. The seeds they used are the ones they donate each month in lieu of paying school fees.

Another event which was disrupted by the pandemic was the Badan Komunikasi Pemuda Remaja Mesjid Indonesia (the Communication Agency of Indonesian Mosque Youth) camp. This year, Leuser Nature School hosted the camp, which was attended by the Camat of Besitang and his staff, the Head of Bukit Mas Village, the head of the MUI (Indonesian Islamic Scholars Council) of Besitang Sub-district, and teenagers from Besitang sub-district. Hosting the camp was a great opportunity for the students to proudly show the other attendees their school, the rewilding project and the permaculture project they all help with, and will no doubt encourage the adults in attendance to send their children there in future years.
