Jersey trees for life planting hedgerows and trees with St Peters school

St. Peters School hedgerows and trees

Back in March this year we joined St Peters school to plant hedge whips and trees around their school grounds. Every child had the chance to do some planting with Robin and the team and everyone enjoyed the experience.

We did an assembly this week to follow up and so we could share more about our trees, what they do for us and how important they are for wildlife habitats. It seems we will be busy this year as they are very keen to learn more and help us look after and plant more trees. Three lovely (and brave) Year 5 girls took part in a demonstration on school grounds to express their concern about our loss of trees and the impact this will have…. We have a plan on where they would like to take their concerns and I will be supporting their efforts as they gain momentum.
