A Community Partnership

Trees for Survival is a community partnership.

The most successful Trees for Survival schools have these things in common:

  • The School Board of Trustees commitment and involvement.
  • A dedicated teacher who communicates well with all involved
  • A local volunteer person who loves children and plants and can keep an eye on the watering over the summer holidays.
  • A reliable water supply with sufficient pressure to run an irrigation system.
  • Financial support from a local community group such as a Rotary Club.
  • Assistance from a Field Officer, who may also be an Enviroschools facilitator.
  • Assistance from local bodies and landowners with the organisation of planting sites.
