Preserve Planet Earth Tree Planting Day – 16 May 2015
On behalf of the District Preserve Planet Earth Committee, I am pleased to welcome you all to join The Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden Group Tree Planting Day which will be held at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden located in Tai Mo Shan, Tai Po on 16 May 2015 (Saturday).
During the tree planting activity, participants will acquire understanding about reforestation in Hong Kong, the values of native trees, and also will carry out planting of tree seedlings on the hill slopes.
You will surely enjoy the silent walk, a breathing exercise to empty the mind and focusing on breathing. Participants will feel relieved and more connected to nature.
This is also a team building exercise as different native tree species will be planted in groups with different treatments. The whole experience will increase co-operation, enhance communication skills and develop team spirit among fellow Rotarians.
