During our Friday session we will be doing a litter cleanup with Friends of the Liesbeek (FOL) for two hours to work on general cleaning and beautifying the river. This is part of the week long activities to celebrate Mandela day.
We will meet at the end of Lower Nursery Road in Rosebank. The coordinates are: -33.95820, 18.47287
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
