Gardening at Thandokhulu High


Thursday Nov 08, 2018 | 09:00-10:00

During our Thursday sessions we garden for an hour to work on general cleaning, weeding, and beautifying the chosen site. We focus on the Mowbray-Newlands area and rotate the sites we work at every week. Join us if you'd like to see how we work at our the public spaces!

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:

- Spades
- Cutters
- Garbage bags
- Gloves
