Planting day at Huis Luckhoff

Friday Jun 21, 2019 | 10:00-12:00

Communitree with help from Friends of The Liesbeek, volunteers and the Rosebank community has been working towards transforming this patch into a publicly accessible and beautiful fynbos garden. In the previous weeks we were able to discuss the garden design, clean and remove the first segment of invasive grass on the patch.

The volunteers from Huis Luckhoff have done a magnificent job growing some plants. We finally get the chance to transfer these species to the new garden.

We need YOUR help. How to help?

- Join us to pull out the last bits of the grass-roots, prepare the soil and finally transplant the plants grown by the volunteers.
- If possible, feel free to bring your own gloves and digging fork. The more tools-the easier the work!
