Over the years Crann has run various tree related projects and we are very proud of our current initiative. We are lucky to have on board, the well known ecologist, Dale Treadwell who visits schools throughout the country with Crann environmental awareness workshops. He introduces students to the animals and plants that are to be found all around them in their own gardens, fields and school grounds (especially the mini beasts). Following workshops, the students join Dale in the planting of trees to enhance the school grounds. So successful is this project that in 2009 Crann has adopted the program for the various age groups, continuing with the tree/hedgerow planting in designated areas of the schools.
We believe that these projects will have a huge impact on the school children involved. The schools visits will reap dividends for years to come as the children grow and become the community leaders of the future.
Crann also feels that the Projects have many benefits in improving the environment for those who live there and greatly assists Crann’s efforts to raise ‘public awareness’.
