Outdoor meeting of EBA Odesa Ecological Working Group
On Friday, November 8, 2019, EBA Odesa Ecological Working Group was held in an special format. The meeting was dedicated to greenspace expansion of the city. The idea was supported by the EBA Member-companies – Ekoresurs and UkrEkoProm. Andriy Rayets, Founder of the interactive map Greenmaker.org, gave us useful advices on the selection and planting of seedlings.
During the event, the trees of paradise apples and Pissardi’s plums, as well as the bushes of thorn Weigel, Buddleia and more were planted. In the process, we were tipped off about technology and lifehacks how to keep the plant rooted. So, if you want to strengthen rhizomes, you should add a feeding which provides nutrition of the seedling. During planting, the roots should not be on the surface, but it is not necessary to deepen the plant too much. The best solution is to put the neck of the seedling at the ground level, because root requires the maximum space area. When you plant the herb with earth, do not forget to loosen it in order to form an air cushion. It will help to get better moisture. Remember, planting seedlings is a half of the battle. In the future, trees and shrubs have a need of regular watering and care.
We thank all the participant for joint efforts in such a big deal! The first steps have been taken, and soon the Peremogy Park will get strong crowns of trees that protect all the inhabitants of Odesa from wind and rain and become reliable source of fresh air!
