Vertas help Cedarwood Primary School sow the seeds for a greener future

Submitted by Amelia O'Hanlon | 04/03/2022

As part of Vertas’ free tree planting initiative, its passionate grounds team recently visited Cedarwood Primary School to inspire children to sow the seeds for a greener future.

Twenty trees were planted free of charge and the grounds team provided the school with all the knowledge and information needed to help the trees to thrive.

The environmental project aims to support young people address issues of the environment, biodiversity, and climate change through tree planting.

Mel Youngs, Deputy Headteacher at Cedarwood Primary School, comments:

“Our fabulous eco councillors enjoyed working with the grounds team from Vertas who kindly donated a number of trees to plant in our school grounds. They worked hard to plant trees in our forest school and our quiet sensory garden. The children had already identified tree planting as a key action point from their regular meetings where they have evaluated the school grounds. They really enjoyed developing the school grounds and are now carefully looking after the new trees as they grow and develop.”

Vertas is passionate about protecting the environment and is on a mission to achieve net zero by 2030. You can read Vertas’ Making the Difference Sustainably Strategy, here.
