“We are very grateful to the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve for sponsoring our planting project: trees were collected from Renu-Karoo yesterday. Also thanks to Philip Esau at CapeNature Uniondale for organising spekboom cuttings.😀
Thanks to our micro grant from the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve, five of us from Uniondale spent the week digging holes and planting. Great to be fighting climate change and keeping fit at the same time “
Cleaning and preparation.
The equipment container also arrived during the week.
The hardest part about planting spekboom is digging the holes.
