Nomads Sports Club History

The Greening of Nomads

July 2, 2011  |    Share

 

On a clear day three to five years from now, leave your umbrellas at home when you come to Nomads.
By then natural umbrellas would be shielding you from the harmful rays of the sun.
And be ready to view bats at night as these umbrella trees attract the winged mammals which feast on the fruit of the Talisay trees.
Voila, you have a “mini-biodiversity” hub right here in Merville!.
The greening of Nomads goes beyond the best patch of football pitch through the expertise of Turf Solutions.
Vertical greening is underway as nearly 100 fast-growing trees were planted in the club during the last seven months, concededly a small number considering that the club sits on a two-hectare lot.
But this is just the beginning. Other vacant areas would be carefully selected for the planting of fast-growing tree varieties in the coming months.
Aside from Talisay, Mahogany and Flame trees were planted around the club, making its surroundings the most verdant this side of town. Fifty-five Mahogany trees were donated by the Goitia family and were planted close to the Moonwalk gate. Fifty more trees were added by the family last month and planted by our grounds staff.
And in 3 to 5 years time, the 12 -foot tall Talisay trees (Terminalia Catappa), more popularly known as Umbrella trees, Indian Almond or Sea Almond trees would be providing natural shares for picnics ands bird watching. Once fully grown, they can reach 115 feet “with an upright, symmetrical crown and horizontal branches”. Aside from providing shade in the perimeter wall area, the Talisay trees would also help address soil erosion.
Interspersed with the Talisay trees along the perimeter wall are 10 Flame trees that should add fierce and vibrant colors in the months of April until June every year when these are fully grown. Fifteen other Flame trees were planted around the club, most notably beside the Moonwalk Gate.
Meanwhile, ornamental palm trees, red and green shrubs, and bamboo were planted along the perimeter wall and the children’s playground area.
Rest assured the club would continue to make its land greener, and your active participation in the greening effort would be highly appreciated. If you have a green thumb and wish to donate trees or plants, please see Janice De Guzman, our administration assistant.
