Connecting Young Adults with Nature: Team Emeke of the NCS

On another beautiful day of this British summer, a group of young adults arrived ready with filled water bottles and lots of enthusiasm to plant  30 silver birches in Roundwood Park. The fundraising for this campaign had been successfully completed by this group, who named themselves Team Emeke. This is an ongoing partnership with Teratrees and the National Citizen Service (NCS). One of Teratrees’ objectives is to connect future generations with Nature, and today it was successfully accomplished, along with some urban greening!
