Creating Partnerships to Green our Valley!
We are keen to improve our successful fight against crime, by linking with initiatives to improve the environment in which we are so fortunate to live. The Winterskloof Conservancy was established a few years ago and has re-launched with lots of exciting initiatives and benefits to Winterskloof residents. We aim to make our area safer, cleaner and greener. The Conservancy has linked with the already established Bobbies Initiative and all those that are Bobbies members are automatically a conservancy member.
Every second Tuesday recyclables are left on the curb by conservancy members and collected by Wildlands Trust. In this way we are reducing our carbon footprint and the already enormous strain paced on our landfill sites.
Gardner Education Day
On November 7th a very successful gardener's day was held at Cowan House where Sipho Mhlalanyawo and Joan Rout from Everton Conservancy Alien Eradication Team taught Winterskloof gardeners how to identify and eradicate aliens. It was very well attended and consisted of a lecture session on the different categories of aliens and a practical demonstration was given on how to eradicate the common aliens in our areas. Sipho then went to individual Winterskloof gardens and gave on–site practical advice on how to identify and remove alien infestations.
