During Arbor month, employees from TFG (The Foschini Group) in collaboration with Starke Ayres Garden Centre, spent their afternoon planting indigenous trees with the children at Winsley Primary School.
TFG involves its employees in initiatives so that they can be a part of the journey in making a real difference in local communities.
That’s why, in the true spirit of “ubuntu”, all hands came together and planted a total of 16 indigenous trees and 6 shrubs on the school grounds.
TFG and Starke Ayres also donated 400 seed packets and provided the children with laminated tags to tie onto the trees, educating them on their many benefits.
The children were encouraged to look after their trees with the message that a tree is reminiscent of a family member: it needs food and water in order to grow, but most of all, a tree needs love.
