CoW commemorates Arbor Day
The City of Windhoek joins the rest of the world on 11 October, this Friday to commemorate Arbor Day.

This will include the planting of trees at schools, municipal sites and also the donation of fruit trees to communities.
The City will plant 70 trees at the School for the Hearing Impaired in Khomasdal as part of the official programme of the day’s activities.
Smaller tree planting events will also take place at the Herman Gemeiner Primary School, MH Greef Primary school, Gammams Primary school, Elim Primary school, Augeikas Primary school, Van Rhyn Primary school Theo Katjimune Primary school, Eros Primary school and Bet-el Primary school.
