You are hereGreen Team
Deben Rotaract has a long history of supporting environmental issues by raising money for the Suffolk Wildlife Trust and the Diana Fossey Gorilla Foundation. But in 2008 we decided to increase our contributions towards improving the environment by forming our Green Team. The Green Team has been set up to support Suffolk's ambition of Creating the Greenest County and is engaging at a local level to improve Suffolk's environment through voluteering and sponsoring local environmental initiatives.
Since 2008 the Green Team has undertaken the following:
Last Sunday a group of us headed off to Thorham Walks near Eye to take part in their monthly volunteer day...
We joined the Suffolk Wildlife trust on a glorious Saturday morning to assist in planting trees near Levington Marina.
Our second Green Team event at Hazelwood Marshes this year. One very hot sunday in June 7 of us descended upon the marshes to help Suffolk Wildlife Trust wardens to rennovate the bird hide.
Back at the start of March we helped Suffolk Wildlife Trust plant over 300 trees at their Hazelwood Marshes reserve (see other gallery).
The team help the Suffolk Wildlife Trust plant 300 trees to create a new hedgerow at the Hazelwood Marshes site.
The Suffolk Punch Trust (a local rare breed of horse) have asked the club to build some bird boxes for their site to attract more wildlife to the area.
Helping to rennovate an allotment in Hadleigh for a school project.
Cleared around 2 acres of wet meadow aiding the conservation of many wet meadow species.
