Komenda (C/R), June 12, GNA-The Komenda College of Education has began a project dubbed ‘One Student, One Tree’ as part of the ‘Green Ghana Initiative.
The project seeks to inculcate the habit of planting, maintaining and ensuring environmental cleanliness in students for improved environment.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced the Green Ghana Project in the 2021 State of the Nation Address in March to mobilise Ghanaians for an aggressive nationwide tree planting exercise.
As part of the project, more than five million tree seedlings of different species are to be planted and nurtured to maturity as an aggressive measure to preserve the country’s forest cover and the environment and roll back climate change and its debilitating impact.
Reverend Dr Kwesi Nkum Wilson, Principal of the College told the GNA in an interview on the sidelines of the Green Ghana tree planting exercise at Komenda on Friday, that the exercise was timely.
He lauded government for the initiative and pledged the School’s commitment to religiously monitor and provide advice and technical support to all students to ensure the trees survived.
He also explained that each student was assigned to an economic tree planted by them with a responsibility to nurture them during their stay on campus.
Prior to the Green Ghana exercise, the College had planted 3,500 coconut seedlings on a 45 acre land managed by the College’s Department of Agriculture as part its green drive.
Also, the College had started growing flowers to attract bees to its beehives to produce high quality natural commercial honey for local and international consumption.
According to him, bee juice could boost stamina to help one exercise longer, improve blood flow, and aid normal blood pressure.
Touching on the essence of Green Ghana project, the Principal highlighted the relationship between trees and human existence saying trees give oxygen that man needed to survive.
Trees reduce the amount of storm, water runoff, check erosion and pollution in waterways and reduce the effects of flooding.
« Many species of wildlife depend on trees for habitat. Trees provide food, medicine, protection, and homes for many birds and mammals, » he noted.
The Principal appealed to all to embrace the Green Ghana programme, saying that it was a collective responsibility for Ghanaians to take part in the exercise.
