TREE GUARDIANS: Students help fight climate change in Chalfont St Peter

 Published on: 11th January 2022   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

Students in Chalfont St Peter have been helping out in the community by planting and watering trees in the village over the growing season to help fight climate change.

Eco-conscious students have volunteered as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award, supporting Chalfont St Peter Parish Council fight against biodiversity loss in the village.

Adam from The Chalfonts Community College and Ewen from St Joan of Arc School in Rickmansworth helped with the tree planting.

Adam said: “It was so special to be part of helping to keep a tree watered and healthy so that we and future generations can enjoy its benefits.”

Ewen added: “Watering this tree has been so rewarding, I know the tree will be here for hundreds of years helping to clean the air and making this village beautiful.”

Planting trees helps to absorb dangerous air pollution, reduce flooding, provide oxygen and shelter for wildlife. Over 100 trees have been planted in the village in the last four years, and they are watered and maintained by volunteer tree guardians.

Students who would like to help in future years with volunteering are welcome to email clerk@chalfontstpeter-pc.gov.uk
