Food and Trees for Africa Plants a Growing Green Legacy

Food & Trees for Africa have been planting trees since 1990. 4.5 million is a number we mention frequently – the number of trees planted to date. Although impressive, this metric is meaningless without the impact stories that accompany it. The stories of growing pools of shade, harvests of fruit, watering and nurturing and learning through care for trees.

Tsebo Secondary School in the Free State and Morabitseng Primary School in Mpumalanga both received 20 trees in 2009. The schools used the trees to beautify the grounds and provide shade for learners. Both the schools used the trees they received to teach about the environment in the classroom and outdoors. They say that this contribution benefited their student’s ability to learn about the environment in a more practical way.

These trees are a tangible reflection of our Green Legacy and a reminder of why we do what we do at FTFA.

You can contribute to this green legacy by planting trees with us at schools that have applied for trees.
