Year 5 Planting Trees on Mabley Green

Year 5 children were excited and thrilled to have been invited to Mabley Green to plant 12 trees as part of our ECO project and also be a part of helping our local community become green. The children in pairs were each given a tree to plant and were taught skills like how to dig, levelling the ground, watering techniques and the uses of tree bark. The children had a fun day out in the park and great news for parents, Mabley Green holds a weekend planting session where the whole family can get involve. Hope to see you get involved and Happy Green Fingers!
