Communitree converts forgotten public space into corridors of indigenous gardens in Cape Town
We have directly supported the creation of 18 community created Fynbos rehabilitation gardens along our intended corridors of the Liesbeek and Black Rivers, and indirectly support many others.
Our mission is to empower people to green public space with locally indigenous vegetation and contribute to socio-ecological restoration.
Ingcungcu Sunbird Restoration
Our vision is to link the Table Mountain National Park with the Boland Mountains via a series of indigenous pollinator gardens, restoring the migration routes of nectar-feeding birds across the densely urbanized Cape Flats in Cape Town, South Africa. We aim to achieve this by planting indigenous gardens of carefully selected nectar-rich species at strategically located schools and community centres, which provide ‘filling stations’ for birds and outdoor learning spaces for students and the surrounding communities. This ecological corridor will also link the isolated patches of critically endangered lowland vegetation that remain on the Cape Flats, and reconnect them to the surrounding mountain ranges.
