Soil Conservation Service donates Christmas Trees

To commemorate its 100th anniversary, the Soil Conservation Service of Iceland (SCS) donated Christmas trees to the elementary school in Hvolsvöllur, south Iceland, the last week before Christmas.

Director of the SCS Sveinn Runólfsson told the students about the origin of the first tree they received and afterwards they danced around it and sang Christmas carols.

The donation is part of the SCS’s goal to teach Iceland’s youth about soil conservation. The service has created learning material for kindergartens and elementary schools around the country, which is supposed to be both educational and entertaining.
