Hirsch’s Silverlakes recently collaborated with Varsity College Pretoria to plant a peach tree in celebration of Arbor week – which is all about celebrating the importance to the planet of trees and plant life generally. A team of students, staff members and Mr and Mrs Varsity College, Lamont Petersen and Taylor vd Burgh, arrived with enthusiasm and started the event with a member of staff from Hirsch’s digging a hole big enough to fit the tree. The students all took part in putting a shovel-full of soil to cover the hole. The Hirsch PRO’s for Silverlakes and Centurion then watered the plant to end the ceremony.
Commented the store PRO, Tsz Yan Lau, “The VC team absolutely loved the event and said that they loved the other community projects that they had participated in earlier in the year. With their vibrant energy, they were such a fun crowd to have around.”
The students and staff were then invited in to enjoy a cup of delicious cappuccinos while they relaxed from all their hard work.
