In South Africa, Arbor Day was first celebrated in 1983. The event captured the imagination of people who recognized the need for raising awareness of the value of trees in our society. As sources of building material, food, medicine, and simple scenic beauty, trees play a vital role in the health and well-being of our communities.
Members of SALI Gauteng supported the Nokuphila Primary School by planting of 70 indigenous trees.
The Grade 3 class had some interaction with the planting of the trees and gained an understand of the importance of trees to our environment.
40 Moringa trees were also planted and 4 beautiful repurposed wine vats that were donated and this will be planted with herbs.
