Roots & Shoots South Africa
We are new members of the Roots and Shoots program of the Jane Goodall Institute in South Africa. Forres Preparatory School has started its own Roots and Shoots Club. This is being run by the children, in keeping with the excitement which Forres children already experience in learning to be good stewards of this earth. Forres Prep, overlooking Rondebosch Common, fosters a keen sense of the role we all play in supporting our Diversity and our Natural World.

Today we divided the roots and shoots garden with the soon to come foundation phase garden.We have decided to separate these gardens with 'plant trenches' an idea made up by our founder Caroline Esterhuizen.She also suggested that we make a pond type pool in the middle of our garden as a sub-source of water.Ben,Andrew and I went to look for a round tub for the frame of the pond.We returned several times with no luck in finding any suitable tubs and decided to give up.
