Karoo Desert NBG Biodiversity Education and Empowerment Programme
The following programmes are offered:
What we have achieved
- During 2010 we greened 3 Worcester schools as part of our Outreach Greening Officer's one year contract which ended in October 2010.
- During 2011 we celebrated National Science Week at the Karoo Desert National Botanical Garden inviting 6 schools to a special Plant Adaptation and the Global Warming lesson.
- In 2012 we celebrated Arbor Week together with the garden staff of Karoo Desert NBG and Harold Porter NBG at Iris Qwela in De Doorns.
- In 2013 we celebrated Biodiversity Day with 50 grade 11 learners from Visisizwe in Worcester by investigating the wonder of succulents. We invited a local who is also a sangoma to tell learners of the amazing healing power plants.
A new Biodiversity Education staff member has joined us at the Karoo Desert NBG. He is Thamsanqa Makade, a young Groen Sebenza incubent. He will assist with Biodiversity Education at the Karoo Desert NBG
