Foster a Tree Campaign at MCAST, Malta

During 2020, a number of volunteers at the College started on a campaign called “Foster a Tree” to encourage staff and students to voluntarily help grow indigenous trees and the first sessions were held at Students’ House.
Seeds for the trees (Holm Oak, Cypress, Lentil and Almond Tree) were provided for free, together with recycled containers, compost and instructions of how to sow the seeds and how to nurture the saplings. The events saw an encouraging uptake of over 150 trees. Staff members selected and sowed the seeds themselves and will nurture them until they can be returned to the community.
