Cape Town is the home to one of the most diverse but also the most endangered ecosystems in the world - the Cape Floral Kingdom. While Greenpop has not, historically, ventured into the realm of fynbos, the recent drought has offered us a golden opportunity to adjust our urban greening programme to help conserve this precious ecosystem.
Our new Fynbos for the Future programme consists of three, complementary interventions. At each of our beneficiary schools, we will be installing rain/greywater systems, planting modular fynbos gardens to serve as outdoor classrooms, and running workshops on key themes including water, the magic of fynbos, biodiversity, and active citizenry which are planned around the CAPS curriculum.
We are very excited to have begun workshops at our three pilot schools: Levana Primary in Lavender Hill, Strandfontein Primary in Mitchell’s Plain, and Mountain Road Primary in Woodstock. We look forward to rolling out the rest of the programme at these sites and many more in June.
