The adventures and misadventures of life are better written to be later told by future generations.
One of the benefits of being in a local professional organization is the chance to take part in worthwhile activities. I am proud to have joined a PPP (Public-Private Partnership) a tree planting Activity along the river banks in the locality last June 30, 2013. It’s PPP of an NGO and the local government.
And why I joined? I believed in the activity’s objective of a three-pronged approach to tree planting: soil conservation, carbon sink, and livelihood.
The bamboo, especially the species B. vulgaris is known for its effectiveness in conserving soil and water along the riparian zones. The woven root system of bamboo acts as a sort of cohesive for colloidal particles making the plant suitable protector near rivers. In addition, bamboo trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, making it a carbon sink. The bamboo trees also provide raw materials for making furniture and other handicrafts.
I sure had fun planting trees. I hope you also had your three-pronged.
