Agora / Planting Peace and Victory
by Jules Parkin with the help of
Trees are incredible. Amongst their many benefits they help to neutralise the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, act as air filters by trapping metallic particles from combustion and brake wear, and increase the infiltration of water into the soil, which helps to reduce flooding.
This morning, our students did a bit of planting and have done a fine job of renovating the front raised bed near the entrance of Newland College – the perfect home for our olive tree (the symbol of peace and victory).
