Abstract

This field report describes a peace education program in the Nakuru district of Kenya, focusing on environmental education tree nurseries. The peace clubs introduced tree nurseries as a way of equipping children to take care of their environment. The interaction required to maintain these nurseries strengthens these relationships and promotes cooperation. By planting and caring for tree nurseries, children are able to express their commitment to their community and to the lasting health of their environment.
