Sunday 29th July is National Plant a Tree Day.
I want to teach my children that to plant a tree, or many, is very important. Giving back to nature is important.
I shared our experience in 2011 when we went to our first Plant a Tree Day.
It was not only a great learning opportunity it was a lot of fun.
And this year was no exception. Whilst July 29th is the official day, individual sites schedule planting days before and after this day. We went to a planting day yesterday.
I just have to point out, I did plant trees too. It's just Rod didn't take photos of me. But I did get stuck into it after I took a handful of photos.
Biggest challenge today was keeping Zander off the freshly planted trees. But we managed.
If you're thinking this is something you'd like to take part in, visit the Plant a Tree Day Website and look for a site near you.
