Since PATT Foundation’s first tree planting project in Thailand we have seen the benefit of incorporating environmental as well as horticultural education into what we do.

We think it’s incredibly important to work with those around our tree planting projects to create woodland ambassadors who will then help care for their local woodland and forests for years to come.

Over 30,000 school children were educated about the environment during our tree planting and habitat building projects in and around Asia.
