BSGC Go Tree Planting on Gran Canaria

27jan2020-plantingA group of approximately 120 students, parents and staff travelled from Tafira and the South to Valleseco to participate in a Fundación Foresta project to plant trees and reforest the island. After instruction from the Foresta monitors, the BSGC volunteers split into small groups tasked with the responsibility of digging holes, planting especially-selected trees and preparing the planted trees for irrigation and future survival. The planting process was energetic, which kept us warm, whilst also being very fulfilling, seeing how many trees we had planted for such an important project.

After completing our morning's work, we moved to a nearby finca where we helped clear debris left after last summer's fires. The fresh air and hard work ensured that everyone was ravenous, and our hunger was sated by sumptuous spread of satisfying Canarian fare.

The school will be visiting another area of the island next weekend (Saturday 1st February) to participate again in this important tree-planting project.
