The elderly of Lousada have already started the plantation season!

We are thrilled to share the first senior volunteering action of this plantation season that took place on December 9th in the lush surroundings of Mata de Vilar (native forest in the municipality of Lousada). This inspiring initiative was made possible through the collaboration of senior environmental volunteers and the pupils from the kindergarten of Social Center of Lustosa under the Forest School. Thus, the intergenerational plantation counted 8 seniors and 21 pupils to plant more than 30 native trees

The event, organized with the aim of fostering a stronger connection between generations and promoting environmental stewardship, brought together individuals of varying ages and backgrounds. The Mata de Vilar, a picturesque location, served as the perfect setting for this community-driven effort.

The senior environmental volunteers, with their wealth of experience and passion for conservation, partnered with the enthusiastic students from the Forest School of Lustosa. Together, they embarked on a mission to plant trees that will not only enhance the natural beauty of the area but also contribute to the overall well-being of our planet.

As shovels dug into the soil and hands worked in unison, a sense of camaraderie filled the air. The exchange of knowledge between the seasoned volunteers and the eager young minds was palpable, creating a dynamic learning environment for everyone involved. Beyond the act of planting trees, this event served as a platform for sharing stories, experiences, and a mutual commitment to preserving our environment for future generations.

The success of this intergenerational planting event is a testament to the power of collaboration and the positive impact that community-driven initiatives can have. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the senior environmental volunteers and the Forest School of Lustosa for their dedication to creating a sustainable and interconnected community.

Stay tuned for more updates on our environmental initiatives and thank you for being a part of this meaningful journey towards a greener, more sustainable future.
