Clearing and planting corner N2 and Liesbeek Parkway

Sunday Oct 01, 2017 | 14:00-16:00

There is a large grassy area that has recently been fenced, located between the N2 and Liesbeek Parkway. Various ideas are underway for adding some new vegetation to this park. This week, we will start right next to the park, at the northern end of it (right next to the N2).

Here we will be removing grass, trimming hedges and later on we will be planting out new plants that have been propagated for this space.

Join us this Sunday at 2pm

Bring any of the following that you might have:

- Sheers, cutters
- Spade
- Fork

- Bags for waste

Getting there

By bicycle: the plot is located across from the Liesbeek Parkway cycle lane. You can cross at the robots at Durban Road, and then bike north along Liesbeek Parkway - the plot will be on your left hand side just before you go under the N2.

By public transport: the site is a short walk from Mowbray train station and the Mowbray taxi rank. If you use a bus or taxi along Main Road, you can get off at the crossing with Durban Road and walk to the plot, which should take about 10 minutes.

By car: it is easiest to access Strubens Road via Durban Road. Once you are on Strubens Road, head north and take a right on Koorhoop Road. The plot is two blocks down, where the road meets Dixton Road.
