Tree planting

Tree Planting
Everyone was lining up just outside of the classroom waiting for the people who were getting changed.

When everyone was in the line we went down to the back of the field we walked along the gravel pathway when we reached the main location the main speaker Anna told us about how we were destroying our forest's for developments .  Next we got into buddies and Carl showed us how to plant a plant , first we had to get the tip of the shovel dug into the ground four times so that it formed a square then we had to dig to out , now we had to put a fertiliser (a green thingy)in the hole , finally we had to put the plant in use the dirt/clay etc ti fill the gaps and then  stomp on in(NOT THE PLANT)give it a little tug to see if its secure and fin.  Next we got started , I was with Johnny , the plant we planted the most was a cabbage tree plant which went really well and Carl helped us with the digging.  Johnny and I managed to get three done along with the help of Paul and Carl.  Finally we finished up and everyone put they're shovels back were they found them, after that the boot of their car was open and it had a little place were we washed our hands , well the people were behind waiting in line someone passed soap so that people in the line could put soap on they're hands (which was very helpful).  When everyone was finished they lined up into a huge group.  My favorite part was we planted the trees/plants.

Ka pai Mauriora. We need to look after Papatuanuku and planting trees in certainly a way we can do this. It also fits in nicely with Matariki about new growth and replenishing the Earth which we really must take better care of. What would happen if we had no trees?? Mum
