Heritage and heirloom Read more […]

Die Oranjezicht-stadsplaas is die proefprojek wat as’t ware die eerste saadjie plant waar inwoners van die buurt weer met mekaar in kontak kom en uiteindelik ook met ander buurte en gemeenskappe kontak maak en saamwerk. Sheryl Ozinsky kon nie toekyk hoe talle openbare groen ruimtes in Kaapstad nie na behore gebruik word nie. Nou het sy ’n plan beraam om gemeenskappe met behulp van selfvolhoubare stedelike plase te verenig en op te voed. Die Oranjezicht-stadsplaas is die proefprojek wat as’t Read more […]

Historical information needed to unearth a path to the past. One of the farm’s volunteers and education program coordinators, Lizza Littlewort, is focussing her Masters degree dissertation on the history of the farm. She would be grateful for any references, memories or even urban myths about the farm, throughout its three hundred year history, which could help in the reconstruction of an idea of what life on the farm may have been like in past eras. This would include not only the traditional Read more […]
