Seed Collectors needed

23 Oct 2014 Posted by in Environment, News and Events | Comments

With spring winding down I am looking for anyone that can assist in collecting seed from the veld in Rondevlei (Erica field) and Zeekoevlei (van Blommestein Park). This would take the place of a short bit of training and collecting of seed on Mon, Tues and Wed at 5:00 – 6:30om next week. We would meet at the Recreation club gates at van Blommestein Park on Peninsula Rd. at 5:00pm.

We will repeat this exercise again mid- November when the seed of other species has ripened.

The collected seed will be used to reseed areas after next years ecological burns that are planned.

Those that are interested in assisting can contact me on email (dalton.gibbs@capetown.gov.za)  for further details.

Erica mauretanica Orphium frutescens (2) Lobostemon glaucophyllus Heady Maiden moths
