In 2017 a total of 98 trees were donated through MySchool donations to Food & Trees for Africa. These trees were allocated to four schools around Johannesburg, who received a combination of fruit and indigenous shade trees. Learners got involved in planting the trees and were really excited to contribute to the greening of their school grounds. Refhitile Primary in Shoshaguve received fruit trees only, to establish an orchard on the property.
Trees were allocated to the following schools:
|Province||Area||Beneficiary||Number of trees||Tree Types|
|Gauteng||Hammanskraal||Mmamotsa Primary School||30||Indigenous Shade Trees|
|Gauteng||Orange Farm||Itemoheng Primary School||27||Indigenous Shade Trees|
|Gauteng||Shoshanguve||Refitlhile Primary School||21||Fruit Trees|
|Gauteng||Hammanskraal||Sekhululekile High School||20||Indigenous Shade Trees|
