Service Minds from Bangkok ServICE 2016 Conference Participants enjoyed tree planting in Phrapadaeng

Location: Paked Urban Forest Park, Phra Padaeng, Thailand
Date: 15th January 2016
No. of trees planted: 300 Trees

The 35 community service warriors from multi International Schools in Thailand were marching in to Paked Urban Forest with pride and excitement to plant trees with PATT and Paked Community.

We started the day with the first group walking along the trail, and the other group went to pot the Shoe-button, Pong Pong, Indian Oak, and Chili. Then we swopped the group. The students were enjoyed walking along the trail and asked many questions regarding the fresh mangrove ecosystem there.

After 2 activities were done, we all went to plant trees which were Red mangrove, River teak, Shoe-button, and white mangrove. The students were enjoyed walking along the bamboo bridges and feeling the mud while planting trees. In the next year, these trees would turn to be the good patch of forest and the next batch of Bangkok ServICE Conference participants would come back to visit again and plant more trees.

Hugh thanks to the teachers to make these happened brilliantly and also all students who made the tree planting filled with laughs and smiles!
