The event started with an interactive presentation which ensured the students have an understanding on the positive effects of planting and reforestation . The students then were distributed in to smaller groups to work on one hands on activity focusing on : Planting activity.

Activity 1: planting activity which involved planning and planting a lot of land adjacent to the school. There we descended to the plot where we planned and discussed the various methods to choose what to plant and where, to design a sustainable landscape taking into consideration the site orientation, irrigation and species of plants. After planning, the students with our help proceeded with executing what they have designed.

The event ended by a briefing session were all participating students received a certificate for participation for the great involvement and commitment.
