Trying to do something to help the environment can often seem like a dauntingly big task. Not knowing where to start or whether your small contribution will even make a difference is often what stops people from getting involved. It is much easier than you think and before you try and commit to full scale environmentally friendly practices rather start small. So what is the quickest and easiest way in which you can make a real difference? Plant a tree.
Planting trees is one of the simplest yet gratifying ways in which to make an impact on the environment. It isn’t rocket science how this helps nor is it going to cost you a fortune. If you really want to go even further, then plant that tree somewhere where they could use a little greening. This week the ORCA Foundation is doing exactly that as we will be pulling on our gumboots and getting our hands dirty as well help the Nature’s Valley Trust with their annual Kurland Greening. Every year they head up to the Kurland Village with the support of the whole community, surrounding NGOs and businesses to plant over one hundred trees in certain public areas of the village. Last year they lined the main street with 100 plus indigenous trees and donated 50 fruit trees to the community for their gardens. We are so proud to be a part of this fantastic initiative.
