Planting event with IES Francisca de Pedraza

Last Friday, January 14, we spent an incredible day planting trees in the playground of the new Francisca de Pedraza secondary school in Alcalá de Henares.

Approximately 300 students from years 1st, 2nd and 3rd of ESO have planted 130 trees and shrubs around the perimeter of the school. The aim of the planting was to provide a green barrier of shrubs and trees to provide shade and reduce the visual impact of the walls in the area of the schoolyard, which previously had no vegetation at all. Species include strawberry trees, junipers, laurels, cypresses, white mulberry trees and a holm oak.

We are grateful for the support provided by the Terra Leaders of "1 Million Trees for Climate Change". And thanks for the commitment of the IES Francisca de Pedraza.
