A local initiative greening the Merton community, called Dig Merton, is also working with Teratrees. Several fruit trees were planted last month, namely apple, pear, plum and cherry trees. These were planted in a plot of vacant land in a residential area, made available after being bombed by the Germans in WWII.
Local groups and neighbours came out to plant fruit trees as part of Dig Merton
The Dig Merton trees are now being offered on the Teratrees Market!
Fruit trees recently planted by Dig Merton
To own one of these trees on Teratrees:
- Click the Top-Up button and get some Teras!
- Click on the Market tab and buy one of the trees! (the ‘Planter’ column will detail ‘digmerton’)
Owning these trees means Dig Merton will be able to plant more with the money they receive.
Teratrees is working with Raynes Park High School and their student business team, SMPLFi, as part of the Young Enterprise competition.
SMPLFi – The Raynes Park High School student company
Using the Teratrees trading platform, this young team of entrepreneurs is going out to source requests to plant trees at their school (called Placing a Bid on the platform). Businesses and individuals will be offered a choice of three types of trees to be planted at their school – this requires them to register, topup with Teras and place the bid for the tree. Once these bids are on the market, SMPLfi can accept the bids, order those trees and plant them, with the difference between the cost of the tree and the bid value being profit for their team!
SMPLFi and Teratrees: Working together to green their school!
This allows this ambitious team to green their school without being dependent on local authority funding, while also providing brand exposure to businesses and helping them to fulfil corporate responsibility requirements. It also allows the local community to get involved and help green the area!
