Plant-a-spek

Gavin Staude and Sonja Peacey from the the Sunrise Rotary Club in Somerset Wests Environmental Committee.

Arbor Day was celebrated at Radloff Park last Saturday, where an initiative to plant 1 000 spekboom plants was recently launched. A large number of people joined in the morning’s festivities, and out of the planned 1 000, about 750 were planted. Christopher Kirkman, the chairman of the Friends of Radloff Park (FORP) committee, expressed his delight at the turnout, and said the remainder of the planet-friendly spekboom will be planted as an ongoing project. Anyone who wants to get involved, and for more information about FORP, can email him at friendsofradloffpark@gmail.com
