The members of Union High School’s Eco Club recently paid a visit to the Camdeboo National Park. During the visit, the learners only had one goal in mind – to clean and revamp the small plant nursery located in the park.
Upon arrival, the learners were divided into three teams – one cleaned the garden shed while the other two each cleaned a seedling structure. This involved weeding, raking, sorting litter and organic materials for discarding or re-use, cleaning, dusting and a lot of organising. The groups worked hard and laughed a lot while getting down and dirty – giving new life to the nursery.
The group will return to the park soon to start planting new plants.
• This activity formed part of the Biodiversity theme of Union’s Eco-Schools project.
