As part of the process for finalising permission to start plowing, sowing and (eventually) harvesting, we are compiling comments residents and others may have about the Oranjezicht City Farm and how it might have an impact on our community’s natural or cultural heritage.
If you would like to contribute any comments – in support or opposition, or just plain old thoughts to share – please do so by sending them in an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org 1 September 2012.
All the best,
The Oranjezicht City Farm Team
The Farm Wish List will undoubtedly continue to grow over time, but we have already had generous offers of help from amazing volunteers. A special thanks is in order to Tanya de Villiers of CNdV Africa Planning & Design and Richard Abrahamse of David Hellig & Abrahamse for planning and survey assistance, and to Fiona Thomson for photography.
More opportunities will arise – particularly once it comes time to start making compost and digging! We will keep you up to date, and in the meantime you can cast your eye on theWish List…we are truly fortunate to live in a community full of generous and talented people. Make sure you take the next opportunity to get to know your neighbours!
OZCF at Heritage Day in Homestead Park
The OH Watch annual Heritage Day Festival on Monday 24th September is fast approaching. Oranjezicht City Farm will be there with information displays, a live farmer, and walking tours of the planned layout for the farm. Look for more information to come soon from OH Watch.
Don’t Be Chicken
The OZCF blog can get flapping with comments on issues related to city farming, like a recent post on keeping backyard chickens. What do you think? And the cockerels…? Make sure you check in and have your say.
