Trees for All
In 2010 Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) celebrates 20 years of greening South Africa. Over 3.6 million trees have been distributed to communities across the country and thousands of Permaculture food gardens have been created. To celebrate these wonderful achievements FTFA is changing the name of the National Tree Distribution programme to Trees for All. Through Trees for All, community groups, centres, schools, hospices, orphanages, churches and others receive trees from generous and visionary companies and individuals. This results in greener and healthier environments, more environmental and climate change awareness, a greener lower carbon future and much more. We look forward to more Trees for All! http://www.trees.co.za/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=182:tree-distribution&catid=42:tree-distribution&Itemid=92

KnowledgeTree Plants Trees as Part of Green Initiative
Document Management Provider Promotes Sustainable Development in Local African Community
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA – 26 April, 2010 - KnowledgeTree™, an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) provider focusing on affordable document management software, today announced that the company would be donating all trees derived from its green IT promotion to a South African school, Zerilda Park Primary School, in Cape Town on April 29, 2010.
The KnowledgeTree green IT promotion, which ran from October 2009 to April 2010, stated that a tree would be planted for every new product sale over US $4,500 as well as for every 1000th community product registration. Through Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA), a South African social enterprise that addresses climate change action and sustainable development, KnowledgeTree will now be donating all the trees to the disadvantaged school.
Zerilda Park Primary School, a school consisting of 1,300 learners (500 of which receive meals through the government Feeding Scheme), is in a culturally diverse, poverty-stricken neighbourhood in Cape Town, South Africa. A mix of fruit and indigenous trees will provide the local community with produce, greatly enhance the dry, barren grounds, give much needed shade while also beautifying the local neighbourhood.
