More than 800 people participated in the Popular Plant to the Francolí

The 800 participants planted 1,400 bushes of six species.

Salou. Costa Dorada. 17 March 2018. The seventh edition of the Plantada Popular on the Francolí River, organized by the Repsol Foundation and the Aurora Association, has been a success. More than 800 people have wanted to join this activity, which aims not only to improve the environment in the river environment, but also encompasses the social and occupational integration of people at risk of social exclusion.

In this edition, which - as always - has had the support of the City of Tarragona, 1,400 shrubs of six different species have been planted.

The hundreds of participants have planted 1,400 plants of six different species of shrubs.

La Plantada Popular is a family activity that has become a great celebration for the little ones, the main protagonists of the day. That is why the participants have been able to enjoy an initial show designed for children.
