The exercise formed part of Youth Month activities during the month of April with the theme “Restore the Earth.”
The first 16 of 10,000 trees were planted at the St. Thomas’ Primary School (STPS) on January 29, 2020, as part of an environmentally-friendly islandwide initiative by the Department of Agriculture. Under the project, both ornamental and fruit trees will be planted at the island’s schools, public areas and homes throughout 2020.
