Please join us on Friday, March 3rd at 9:30 for 10:00 at “The Edge” conference centre for a presentation by a member of the Cape Parrot Project. We all know that a great amount of work has been done to save this endangered species, and Hogsback can proudly associate itself with this initiative.
You may be aware of the fact that thousands of yellow wood and other indigenous trees are in the process of being planted on a site opposite “The Edge” to create a feeding station for the Cape Parrot. As committed and proudly Hogsbackians we invite you to plant a tree following the presentation. You can also adopt a tree and ensure its wellbeing each time you have one of those wonderful cappuccinos or berry milkshakes at “The Edge”. After the presentation we will share tea/coffee and some snacks. Could we please request members to bring a plate of finger foods or cakes, so that we can enjoy each others company and some refreshments after we have completed the physical part of our morning.
Helen Fox mentioned that she requires the following trees to plant between the Yellow Woods. Should you have any spare seedlings on your property she would be extremely grateful if you could donate them to the project.
· Cape Chestnut · Buchunout
· Rhus · Tarkanathus (camphor tree)
· Buddleja · Outeniqua yellowwood
· Real yellowwood · White stinkwood
· Wild Peach · Wild Olive
· Tree fushia · Proteas
Looking forward to seeing you on Friday. Happy Gardening
