We are going to enclose and cultivate an unexploited piece of land at the yard behind the school. At the beginning of the project the help of the village community will be essential. The pupils will seed and adopt this piece of land throughout the year. In the school garden we will plant ornamental flowers, fruit trees and vegetables. Later, when the shoots grow, we will organize a day of healthy diet and focus on the importance of vegetables and fruits. This event will be open to the all the residents of the village and the local authorities.

Our project will help in planting six trees on a barren street that contains very few plants. Our club is partnered with a non-profit organization called TreePeople who will help our volunteers learn the process of properly planting the trees. Many of our volunteers have the title as a Supervisor Volunteer because they have had experience with planting and caring for numerous trees. Their role is to assist any volunteer that is still unsure of the process or is their first time in planting trees. We will promote our event to our club to receive as many volunteers as we can get. Our club is always ready and happy to help the environment, and our supervisors will help in overseeing the event.
