Continuing their long-standing partnership with Lionel Walden Primary School, Aria Court Care Home in March, Cambridgeshire have teamed up on a new rainforest project!
The children at Lionel Walden have been working hard studying the rainforests of the world and the forest’s value to nature and the planet. As part of this project, the children wrote some amazing haikus and poems about their learning, which they kindly sent for Aria Court’s residents to read.
As a thank you Aria Court have planted 50 trees in recognition of the children’s efforts. These trees are Avicennia Marina – commonly known as the grey or white Mangrove – and have been planted in the Marotaola area in North Western Madagascar. These trees are now a small part of the “Athena Forest” – the company plants 5 trees for every new resident who moves in to help create a lasting legacy.
This month the Athena Forest reached a new milestone and now has over 1,000 trees throughout the UK, Kenya, Madagascar, Nicaragua and more! That is just the beginning, as the planting only began in late 2021.
Mavrick Feast, Aria Court’s Home Manager said, “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Lionel Walden. We’ve now worked together on war memories, bird boxes for our gardens and we’re delighted to be able to make a positive, tangible change to our planet in the children’s name!”
