With this motto in mind, within the framework of the bicentennial and in accordance with the month of the tree, the city of Pergamino (Buenos Aires) will launch two proposals aimed at raising awareness and promoting the benefits of having a healthy tree.
The first of them, "Today a seed, a tree tomorrow," consists of the collection and planting of over a thousand seeds of forest species that will take care in the municipal nursery. The project aims to carry out reforestation in the city and will be presented at educational institutions with the purpose that youth take part in in this endeavor and become aware of the importance of caring of the trees.
The second one, "200 trees for the Bicentennial", aims to plant that many trees in different parts of the city. The administration made by the Municipality through the Waste Plant (INTA May 25) and Ecoclub (Ministry of Land Affairs) seeks to explain the importance of tree planting on the street and green spaces. For that will be planted: 61 white ashes, 18 Fruit trees, 71 specimens of different species and 50 native trees for the creation of the Native Forest Patio "on the grounds of the wastes plant.
Finally, with the launch of the "Patio Native Forest" (space that eventually aims to spread the species from different ecoregions of our country), Saturday August 28 will end this series of activities made in order to educate and and raise awareness about the importance of trees and their care.
