To celebrate World Environment Day on 5th June 2018, CHASE partner, Mount Kenya trust, worked with a number of other organisations, including the Kenyan Forestry Service and pupils from Kiambogo Primary School, Kirimara Primary School and Kenya Water for Health Organisation to plant trees.
A total of 4,000 assorted indigenous tree seedlings were planted along one of the water intakes in the Kiambogo area of the Mount Kenya Forest Reserve. The theme of the day was “Beat Plastic Pollution” and the Trust tried (as always!) to minimise anything made of plastic. All the propagation bags were collected as soon as the trees were planted and snacks given to the pupils were either in glass bottles or wrapped in paper.
