May 2012 report from the field: planting with school children

May 2012 report from the field :

Olive tree planting with schools in Rhamna region, Ben Guerir province


With the objective to raise consciousness of the school children and teachers toward their environment, this project used educational materials and programs to change the way children view their relationship with the environment. Teachers, local nonprofit community groups and the department of education collaborated to choose 4 schools, based on availability of water, oversight, available land for planting, and interest expressed by the teachers in the region’s schools.

As part of this initiative, 90 olive trees were planted at 3 of the schools.

Besides teaching about the environment, such programs are very important because these rural children learn from an early age how to plant, care for and appreciate the value of trees and what the trees can provide them and their families when cared for properly. These programs create future stewards of the land.
