Students and staff recently collaborated to plant 400 native broadleaf trees near the Fferm Penglais playing field. The hands-on experience included reclaiming old tree stakes and guards, training volunteers in effective planting techniques, and emphasizing the importance of tree guards against local rabbits.

The initiative aimed to empower participants with practical knowledge, fostering a shared sense of responsibility. As they planted saplings, students grasped the long-term impact on the local ecosystem and the planet.

Beyond volunteering, the event strengthened community bonds among students, staff, and partner organizations, creating a network committed to environmental stewardship. Educational components highlighted trees' role in climate change mitigation, preventing soil erosion, and supporting biodiversity.

The successful event left volunteers feeling accomplished, setting the stage for future similar action days. A big thank you to all attendees; your assistance made it all possible. If you’d like to get involved sign up as a volunteer here to be notified of future volunteering opportunities. 

Special thanks to the Aberystwyth University Sustainability Team, Accommodation Team, and partners Balfour Beatty and Pobl for their support.
