Trees Are Us
STIC employees and first year students joined together for the benefit of us all, as they dirtied their hands for a good cause. Valentine’s Day (February 14th) was actually green this year, as 110 medicinal/edible plants and 40 trees were planted on the campus.
Officials from Tambon Bungsan (the local district) were invited guests, hosted by a group of STIC faculty lead by Ajarn Suwat Benjathammathorn. Their combined cooperation along with the willing hands of the first-year students made for a dirty, but thoroughly enjoyable activity.
The late King Bhumibol Adulyadej would be thankful as tree planting activities were events he heartfully encouraged. As new campus buildings go up so does the greenery, helping cut the campus’s carbon footprint while providing cleaner air for all of us, on campus and off. Working together as a community, such efforts remind us to always be aware of the environment in which we dwell.
