The Rotaract Club of Roseau in affiliation with the Forestry Division and the Canefield Unrban Council has launched a tree planting drive in the Canefield area as part of a Go Green campaign of the club.
The club received 25 different species of plants including Crotons, Oleanders and the ‘Bwa Kwaibe’ from the Forestry Division and sourced assistance from the Canefield Urban Council in clearing and preparing the area for planting on the 25th of August.
According to the club’s Community Service Director, Lisa Latouche, the project was geared toward raising awareness on the benfits of going green, protecting the environment and to increase participation of other volunteers in future ventures.
The project was also done in an attempt to beautify the area.
Rotaract is a vibrant organization of young professionals enacting change in the communities all over the world in keeping with the theme “Service through Passion; Sustainability through Training.”
