Tree Planting Challenge RC George
Rotary Club of George Members and Partners donated and planted 25  ‘Spekboom’ trees (1 for each member of the Club) in an area of the George
Botanical Gardens for future generations to enjoy. This initiative was in direct response to the call by RI president Ian Riseley to all Rotarians to plant a tree on a ‘1 to 1’ challenge.
Rotary George took on the challenge on 31st October 2017!

‘Spekboom’ (Portulacaria afra) is a succulent that helps fight air pollution.
It has the ability to capture more than four tons of carbon per hectare!
‘Spekboom’ is a proudly South African plant!
