For schools the Trees for Survival (TfS) programme provides all dimensions of the environmental education curriculum (See the Point View School website to see how the TfS programme works in their school). For community partners there is not only the opportunity to support your local school but there is the chance to tackle some serious local environmental issues. For example nearly 50% of New Zealand’s farmland suffers from erosion. Lost productivity is only part of the problem – pollution of streams and harbours, flash floods and loss of habitat are all products of erosion. Communities can be involved at one or more levels in the TfS programme.
