'I hope you grow into a beautiful plant and have the best time of her life; Hope you guys grow;
Don’t be taken over by humans; Take over the world...'
These were some of the messages to their plants from twenty Steenberg High learners, who came to Princess Vlei in November to plant over 300 dune strandveld plants in our restoration area on the eastern shore. Species planted included Anthospermum aethiopicum, Plecostachys serphyllifolia, Hermannia multiflora, Leonotus leonurus and Imperata cylindrica. The planters gave creative names to their plants, including Keanu Reeves, Diego, and Jeffrey Dahmer, although hopefully his plant namesake is less murderous.
This was our first activity with Steenberg High learners - we look forward to many more.
