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.

Itching to get going

Spring is knocking at our door. There is still so much rain in Cape Town and the average day is very icy indeed. We have made a tentative start to our term and seeds have been planted in well-prepared tyres. In just 2 weeks we can see little sprouts. The radishes are the most enthusiastic about popping up!

Inbetween rainy days, we have been keeping ourselves busy by recycling paper and making our own paper to use in home-made gardening journals. This last week we also turned our focus to raising awareness about pet ownership and the great responsibility we have to our beloved and loyal. Each Roots and Shoots member has been working on an "Awareness Poster". When they are finished we will post them here.
