Trees play an enormous part in the present and the future to maintain a good quality of life here on Earth. The Rotaract Club of Downtown Batangas City, together with Rotaract Clubs of Alpha San Jose, Batangas Metro Pioneers, Batangas Premier and Downtown Ibaan conducted a tree planting activity entitled, Handprints of Change, held at Brgy. Dalig, Batangas City last August 7, 2021.
The Batangas Agricultural Office has given the participating Rotaract Clubs with over 500 coffee seedlings. In three to five years, these seedlings are expected to grow and the profits earned through selling coffee can be used to provide livelihood and projects for the community in the future. The coffee trees would not only be financially beneficial, it can also help in stabilizing the soil, lessen the possibility of floods, store up carbon and most importantly, trees produce oxygen which is a really important element for human beings to live.
