STUDENTS OF THE SIMÓN BOLÍVAR SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY OF VEREDA LA ESTRELLA COMMITTED TO THE ENVIRONMENT
In a true carnival became the day of arborización that was realized at the Hacienda La Estrella, of the Compañía Cafetera La Meseta.
Boys and girls students of the Simón Bolívar School, teachers, parents and community in general of La Estrella Estate, participated decisively in the important activity.
The reforestation and environmentally friendly event was attended by Chec and representatives of the Fundación Ecológica Cafetera.
Very early the meeting began with a discussion, where the importance of protecting watersheds was announced, and an illustration was also made of the bird species that predominate in the area and the main characteristics of the trees to be planted.
Subsequently, the assistants moved to the areas adjacent to the Quebrada Estrella, where they proceeded to plant dozens of native trees such as; cedar rosé, walnut, vanillo, seven leathers, yellow coffee, bullet cannon, guamo macheto and tabaquillo, among others.
For Milton Harold García Bustamante; Coordinator of Special Coffees, “this activity is only a sample of the commitment that the Coffee Company La Meseta has with the conservation of the environment and the protection of the ecosystem”.
“The participation of the community is very important, especially the children, because from an early age, they learn to have a sense of belonging and to be friendly and responsible, protecting watersheds,” said García Bustamante.
The Meseta has planned to move forward with these reforestation programs and for this it has strategic alliances whose purpose is to plant thousands of native trees in these beautiful coffee lands.
