The world is in peril. And Gaya, the Spirit of the Earth, can no longer stand the terrible destruction plaguing our planet. And she now asks us, to give her a helping hand. — A call for the planeteers to give a helping hand, to heal the world!
Cranfield University Student Association and Walking society Presents:
Heal the world – take part in tree planting @ Forest of Marston Vale
Cranfield University students planting trees last year
The CSA and the walking society ‘Cranfield University’s Walks‘ have joined hands to promote a good cause. A public tree planting event in Forest of Marston Vale.
Tea/coffee/biscuits/tools/toilets etc are provided for all participants. Now all we need is YOU.
Plantation Timings: 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Date: 2nd December
NOTE: We would require you to register at the CSA office 1st floor, by Thursday evening, so that we get an estimate of the number of people for whom transport has to be arranged.
COST: 3 pounds (a meager sum for a much better Earth) and this includes the refreshments as well as transport.
It’s your chance to make a difference!
