We will be working at the Rondebosch Common Traffic Circle. A lot of weeds and grasses have come up, which we need to remove. Furthermore, there are a lot of small pelargoniums that are indigenous and need to be taken care of in home nurseries. So on Saturday we will be working on this. Come help us! If you are keen on taking care of some pelargoniums, then be sure to bring some trays and we can put them in the trays right away.
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
