We are a group of students from Rototuna Senior High School participating in a student lead impact project where we have to organise a community planting day.
Sow Good is an impact project that is environmentally based. Over the past couple of months, students have been learning about the impact of cutting down too many trees have on the environment. They have also learned that not all the trees that are cut down are being replaced only some. Although in New Zealand we have a green clean image it is gradually going down because of the new roads (like the Waikato Expressway). With the Waikato Expressway right behind our Kura, our school and the new houses that are being developed around, we thought that the level of vegetation will be low due to the loss of farmland. To fix this we plan to plant 5000 trees.Read More
