On Friday 4th March, we were given the fantastic opportunity to plant willow, birch and oak tree saplings donated to us by the Woodland Trust. To our surprise, we managed to plant all 105 in the grounds of St Dominic’s! The experience was extremely therapeutic, and it was very rewarding to leave a legacy that will not only last beyond our time at the College but beyond our time on the planet!
Planting trees is one of the most beautiful and simple ways to offset the emissions of our increasingly carbon-intensive lifestyles.
We hope this is the start of a greater sense of appreciation of the natural beauty of the college as well as of many future conservation projects.
