Sri Lanka National Tree Planting Day
October 15th 2010
Today is National Tree Planting Day in Sri Lanka, where the government of Sri Lanka encourages individuals and groups to plant trees. The National Tree Planting Day falls on the 15th of October every year.
Touchwood has been participating in several National Tree Planting Day events in the past couple of years. Touchwood, in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources in Sri Lanka, has been planting and maintaining trees in Colombo and in the suburbs around Sri Lanka.
In 2009, Touchwood Sri Lanka sponsored the event by planting Sandalwood trees – a species that is well known for its natural organic qualities and positive, life-enhancing benefits.
The event took place on the 16th of October 2009 and Touchwood planted well over 100 endangered plants at the fort railway station in order to make them visible for the general public.
Hon. Patali Champika Ranawaka (Minister – Environment and Natural Resources) and Hon. Dullas Alahapperuma (Minister - Transport) participated in the event.
