Catalan teachers planted New Zealand native plants as part of 2Ways Aotearoa English and Culture Programme in Christchurch on 13 July 2007.

Tree planting partially offset the green house gas emission caused by the long-haul flight to New Zealand from Catalonia, Spain. “Each tree planted provides oxygen for two people for the rest of their lives.”

Catalan teachers planted New Zealand native plants as part of Aoteaora English and Culture Programme in Christchurch on 13 July 2007.

Tree planting partially offset the green house gas emission caused by the 12,000km flight to Christchurch, New Zealand from Catalonia, Spain. “Each tree planted provides oxygen for two people for the rest of their lives.”

Catalan teachers learn about New Zealand native plants.

Time, knowledge, cultivation and patience are the common nutrition to grow up plants and students.

Education, Recycle, Regeneration and Planting are the key points of environmental conservation.

Milk paper bottles are cut off the top and bottom then become the perfect plant pots.

milk paper bottles are recycled as plant pots

A new wee plant is regenerated in a wasted milk bottle. Watch out our pre, during and post-consumption and stay eco-friendly.

Catalan teachers check how sharp the plant Spaniard is.

Catalan teachers head to the planting spot with tools.

make sure to keep half-meter distance among the wee plants

Firstly dig a 20cm hole and then take off the milk paper bottle.

Do you know how many trees need to be planted in order to offset the greenhouse gas emission caused by 12,000km flight to Christchurch, New Zealand from Catalonia, Spain? - 67!

Kiwis are pleased to see the new roots planted by Catalan teachers as the first-hand environmental education experience.

“Moltes gracies per la feina feta!”

Amelia revisits the plants on Earth Day 5 June 2009.

Obviously, the native shrubs and plants voluntarily planted by Catalan teachers in July 2007 grow happily and healthily in Christchurch, New Zealand.
