Helping Hands Needed


#kidsGardenClub begins; GradeR's bring kitchen cuttings for their 1st CompostPod

First Stop: Steenberg Primary School to assist with establishing, and most importantly, maintaining a food garden on site alongside pupils and teachers; with the kind involvement and endorsement of the school body and staff.

Next on List: ditto @ Harmony Primary School in the new year, depending on school's renovation plans. But, our growbags are super portable so we can always move it out of the way while building reconstruction is happening.

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT ... Plantup-za has moved to SSubs Cape Town since October 2016 ... Renovating and reconditioning my childhood home into a Community Garden Nursery;  as HEADQUARTERS for Steenberg school kids garden club: A community garden, environmental conservation and educational hub.

We'll be building our raised beds (1x2 meter growbags) layering in sheet mulch materials as collected by pupils and community. Teaching kids how to recycle/re-purpose common wasted resources into useful items for garden use ... bed borders, windbreaks, watering cans, seedling cloches, pest protectors, slow drip deep root watering pods, grey water filters. Meanwhile the older kids (grade 3 to Grade7) will be nurturing their seedCUBES in preparation for transplanting into Grade R's raised beds. Composting and mixing up plant food teas and pest repelling concoctions. And, soo muched planned  for once we have sustainable momentum going ...

Kindly help speed things along.

We need financial support, cash goes a long way toward filling out the insurmountable gaps.
