Please join us at The Watershed tomorrow, 5th of September, for the Arbor Day Fair where a range of plants and trees will be on sale. The fair will run from 09h00 to 13hoo.
South Africa celebrates Arbor Week annually in the first week of September. The campaign is run by the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries.
National Arbor Week is an ideal time to encourage residents to plant indigenous trees and plant material as a practical and symbolic gesture of sustainable environmental management.
Members of the Landscape and Environmental Committee at Mount Edgecombe are inviting residents to consider sponsoring a tree for their gardens or for the Estate. (Please click here for full details)
