Dibanisa Lesson 2.1: The importance of plants

Posted under Eco-Tourism Blog by Grootbos on 2nd May 2012

This week’s lesson took place at the Green Futures Horticultural and Life Skills College at Grootbos. Vuyiswas told the girls more about fynbos. Fynbos got its name when the Dutch settlers came to the Cape and called it ‘fijnbos’ i.e. ‘fine leaved’. The most important elements of Fynbos is of course Erica’s, Restios and Proteas!

The girls also sang their ecosystem song!

Sharlene told the girls more about the importance of plants and what a plant needs in order to be healthy!

They then each got the opportunity to plant their own plant!

The girls then each made a bookmark representing the plants and animals in the Fynbos!

We want to thank Green Futures for hosting us as well as Vuyiswa and Sharlene for presenting their lessons, as well as Irma and Sophie from the Football Foundation for helping with the making of the bookmarks!

We look forward to our next lesson which will take place with the Dyer Island Conservation Trust!
