Greening Tembisa this Youth Month and Environment Month July 6, 2018

On the 14th of June Food & Trees for Africa and Cova Advisory planted trees at Tsosololo Ya Africa Secondary School in Tembisa. The school were happy to receive 40 trees, half fruit and half indigenous shade, to create an orchard at the school as well as shade for learners. School learners enthusiastically ran the tree planting programme and planted trees in honour of National Youth Month and National Environment Month.

This forms part of a 208 tree commitment on the part of Cova Advisory – calculated to offset the company’s carbon footprint. “As an advisory firm on carbon and sustainability, it is part of our journey to lead by example and be carbon neutral and to be able to contribute to our local community”, commented Tumelo Chipfupa from Cova. These trees will offset a total of 76,75 tonnes of C02e in their lifetime.

The trees were planted through FTFA’s programme, Trees for All, which provides the perfect opportunity to be environmentally responsible whilst also benefitting local communities. This donation has benefited a total of 8 schools in the Tembisa area, with fruit and indigenous shade trees they requested, enabling FTFA to further the impact of tree planting where it is needed most.

“Planting trees is an important activity particularly in youth month and world environmental month,” commented Emily Jones from Food & Trees for Africa, “it is important that the youth gain an appreciation for the environment early on to ensure a sustainable future for future generations.”
