Environment Week

June 7, 201

This week in the village we celebrated our environment. We had a guest speaker and the Environment Club organized a community trash and litter clean-up. We learned how important it is to protect the land we live on and the animals and plants we live with. We learned to be aware of our human imprint. In our geography class we learned that disturbing natural habitats and cutting down bushes causes erosion. In our weekly Wednesday night debate we discussed this topic. Is it better to cut down trees and bush to get food or to let it grow naturally around us? My opinion is that we should allow our plants to grow because they supply the oxygen that keeps us alive! Many girls in my family said that you can’t cut the bush because it provides shelter for other animals as well. We all did agree that it is okay to plant trees to get fruits from them and we are very proud of our Agahozo-Shalom farm!
