Students at First Baptist Christian School got to experience the rejuvenation of nature first hand when RE/MAX associates joined hands with them in planting trees at the First Baptist Church and School of Grand Cayman recently.
Students from kindergarten to third grade received hands-on lessons about planting fruit trees as they participated in the planting of six Mango and avocado trees.
RE/MAX Cayman Islands agents had an enjoyable morning as they rolled up their sleeves and dug into the soil right along with the students, helping them plant the young trees, states a press release.
For the RE/MAX team this is just the first tree planting of several that will take place in upcoming months.
RE/MAX agents feel that giving back to the community is important, and demonstrating this to the youth helps to emphasize that importance to tomorrows leaders.
‘Allowing the youth to participate in community growth and service encourages that behaviour later in life. It establishes a sense of pride in oneself and in their community,’ said Edna S. Ebanks, the RE/MAX sales associate who organized the tree planting.
