Save the Olive tree!

Students from Alarcos School in Valverde (Ciudad Real) have taken part in the tasks related to the transplanting of two trees from the playground to the leisure area next to the sport facilities of the district.

Some years ago, these students planted an Olive tree and a Pomegranate tree in the playground. They have been taking care of them all this time and they have seen them growing. Soon, the construction of a new lecture room building will be started. Hence, the trees had to be moved as they were placed in the area where the new facilities will be built.

Therefore, since the students were informed about the new construction, they asked for the effort to save the trees. They made themselves available to collaborate.

Today, their request has come true and the Olive tree and the Pomegranate are in a safe place near the sport facilities, where the students will continue taking care of them as well as the Valverde's inhabitants.
