Tree Planting in Italy

12 registered schools in Italy. Scuola Media Statale "A. Manzoni" in Catanzaro planted three trees ( Acer monspessulanum, Aesculus Hippocastanum, Acer campestris). Their comments:

"It was a very sunny day and we took about 300 pupils to the park where they planted their trees. The event was a very special one, pupils wore white T-shirts with a small logo "Plant for the planet" on them, they sang songs and told poems about the trees and sang "Hi and Hoe" while planting the trees. They also exhibited a lot of posters they had painted, with pictures of trees and advertisment for the event. It was a great experience for them and for us teachers as well. "
