Botanist Clive McDowell made available a large number of tree to Communitree. Working with Friends of the Liesbeek, these trees were collected to be added to the nursery. Part of the trees were taken directly by FoL to be planted, and the rest was taken by Communitree to the nursery. The goal is to use these trees for this and this. The species include A and B and C. We are very grateful for Clive's donation of trees
About Gardening activities
During gardening events, we go out to a public greening site and work on general maintenance, cleaning, and upkeep of the plot. These events are key in our activities and they have a huge public impact. By keeping (often formerly abandoned) plots in good shape, the public space often transforms from an eyesore and underused space to an inviting space.
During the gardening events we often work on chores like cutting back or removing grass, cleaning up the space (littering is often an issue), removing weeds, taking care of the plants, and improving the soil. You do not need any gardening experience to join these events. The only thing that really matters is your enthusiasm to participate in public gardening! But if you do have some equipment, always feel free to bring this along. Especially useful are:
- Garbage bags
