A JOINT TREE PLANTING ACTIVITY BETWEEN KENYATTA UNIVERSITY AND SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST (ADVENTURES) AT THE KENYATTA UNIVERSITY SDA AND ABOURETUM UNIVERSITY. ON 21ST MAY, 2023.

The school of Agriculture and environmental sciences in conjunction with Seventh Day Adventist church (Adventurer Group) organized a joint tree planting activity at the main campus on 21st May, 2023. The ceremony witnessed the planting of 1,140 assorted fruit tree seedlings at the arboretum. The assorted tree seedling had earlier been donated to the university by the same group. The group consisted of more than 1,000 children aged 10 and below. They were accompanied by their parents and teachers and church leaders during the event. The tree planting started with the planting of 40 fruit seedlings at the church compound before proceeding to the arboretum where the main event was hosted. After the event all the participating groups were presented with awards by the Executive Dean School of agriculture and environmental sciences who was the chief guest.

The volunteer activity which was aimed at helping the young children to learn how to plant trees, take care of their environment. This also helps understand how to maximize the focus of the Adventurer Club in strengthening the parent-child bonds and enable both parents and children to understand their relationship to God.

This activity was one among the range from games and outdoor activities to nature exploration and family camping, field trips and community service projects. Each child is encouraged to participate in all activities and parents/guardians are given assignments along with their child. There are many age-challenging activities on the Adventurer menu. These range from games and outdoor activities to nature exploration and family camping, field trips and community service projects.
